Star of stage and screen, Brian Dennehy (Death of a Salesman, Long Day's Journey Into Night, Cocoon) delivers a stunning performance as Thomas Dunne in this profound and poignant drama. Set in an Irish county mental home circa the early 1930s, 75-year-old Thomas Dunne's mind lapses in and out of lucidity as he ruminates on a string of bittersweet memories. Between thoughts of his youth to thoughts of his adult life, with his wife and children, to memories of his time as the head of Dublin's Metropolitan Police, Dunne struggles to make sense of his life as the world around him falls apart. Already a story of unquestionable power, The Steward of Christendom is shaped into something unforgettable by Dennehy's extraordinary performance. Learn More

I LOVE it - it is a MUST SEE! If you liked In Burges - you'll love this! The cast and direction - phenomenal - set - sound - special effects - equally phenomenal. Chris Pine is a standout – hooray for a bonafide movie-star that comes from theatre!
Quotes & Highlights
- “If Monty Python has ever tackled the issue of Irish terrorism, they might have created something as wild, as brilliant and as weirdly exhilarating as The Lieutenant of Inishmore.”--NY Daily News
- “The good people of Inishmore cordially invite you to watch them paint the town red — a vivid, sticky red that comes, as the phrase goes, straight from the heart."--Ben Brantley, The New York Times
Olivier Award-winner Martin McDonagh (The Pillowman) makes comedy from carnage in this highly theatrical — and unapologetically bloody — romp.
Padraic (played by Chris Pine) is a handsome, dedicated terrorist deemed too mad for the IRA. He takes a break from torturing “valid targets” and blowing up fast food restaurants when he hears that his best friend in the world, a beloved cat, is doing poorly.
Critics raved and gasped over this 2006 Tony Award® Best Play nominee. You can decide for yourself when the original Broadway director stages this daring and disturbingly intoxicating dark comedy.
Directed by Wilson Milam (Tony-nominated for directing the Broadway production of this play), the cast of The Lieutenant of Inishmore features (in alphabetical order) Ian Alda, Andrew Connolly, Coby Getzug, Seán G. Griffin, Kevin Kearns, Zoe Perry, Chris Pine and Brett Ryback.
