A truly humorous and clever play, albeit extremely dark; the writing was fantastic and the production level was high. The actors did a tremendous job. I laughed out loud several times. Highly recommended, subject matter risky.

A bit bloody. Good acting. The story a bit silly at times. The theater was small enough that there really wasn't a bad seat in the place.

Super dark and funny!!!! I highly recommend this play as the acting was superb. The story is silly, but quirky enough to keep you interested, especially if you are a cat lover. Great fun. Adult humor, not for kids.

Description

The Lieutenant of Inishmore

By Martin McDonagh

Directed By Jon Kretzu

Filled with as much laughter as gore, this is a shockingly funny black comedy from one of today’s hottest Irish playwrights about blood, guts and a little black cat named Wee Thomas. This Monty Python-esque farce shows us to what extremes a man will go when his cat is killed. The fact that this man is an insane and ruthless Irish terrorist who thinks the IRA is “too soft” only makes the play funnier and more daring.   __

The Lieutenant of Inishmore__ was nominated for the 2006 Tony Award for Best Play.  Artists Rep first introduced the playwright to Portland audiences in 2000 with their production of __The Beauty Queen of Leenane.  __
