Always bring an extra jacket as the theater leans to the cold side.

A Behanding in Spokane was GREAT....Very Quentin Tarantino-esque. Super intense, funny, and the acting was superb. I highly reccommend it!!!
Loved the cast~I would see it again~

It was a preview but the actors were not in tune with the dark humor of the play. The laughs were few and far between as a result.

Description

All Carmichael wants is a hand… his hand.

A Behanding in Spokane is the hilarious dark comedy from award-winning Irish playwright, Martin McDonagh (In Bruges, The Lieutenant of Inishmore). The title is just the starting point; take a man searching for his missing hand, two con artists out to make a few hundred bucks, and an overly curious hotel clerk, and the rest is up for grabs.
