Lonesome West

Title of Show: Lonesome West

Synopsis: 2 brothers + 1 inheritance = lots of misbehaving. In this dark Irish comedy written by the Academy Award winning writer/director Martin McDonagh, two brothers in rural Ireland squabble over the inheritance left by their recently deceased father. Also, there’s a rumor about town that one of them may have murdered the father over a haircut-related insult. The local parish priest and a young girl from the community, also their bootleg whiskey supplier, attempt to keep the brothers from quarreling with hilarious results. (This fully-staged production will be presented along with several staged readings of McDonagh’s connected plays.)
