THE LONESOME WEST

By Martin Mc Donagh

The Lonesome West is a dark hilarious and raw play by contemporary playwright Martin

McDonagh, part of his famous Connemara trilogy.

 Set in rural Ireland we meet the Connor Brothers shortly after the sinister death of their father.

 The raw hatred they have for each other is a constant source of angst for Fr. Welsh and only Girleen, with her Poteen brings any cheer to their dour home.

Their childish squabbles over tayto erupt into threatening brawls.

 It’s sad, funny, and charged with emotion as the brothers seem resigned to their loneliness
