Since my parents were both from the Lonesome West, I am disposed to laugh at and enjoy McDonagh's plays, four of which I've seen. My objection to them is that he always seems to push just a bit too long and too far, even with this one. We get it. That said, I thought the actors did a good job portraying the oafish -- nay, brutish -- brothers, once I became attuned to their brogues. I do not think the character of Father Welsh (Walsh?) is accurately defined in your blurb. Colin Walshe (Welsh? Walsh?) played him well enough, but this whiskey priest's final choice did not convince me.
