The weather was very warm for February.. I wore jeans, a casual top and jeans jacket. I'm glad I had the jacket because it was a little cool in the theatre. I wore comfortable shoes so we could walk around Old Town before and after the play..

I went to a Sunday matinee. The weather was really nice and I was afraid it would be hard to find a place to park, so I took the trolley! No stress! It was an easy five minute walk to the theatre from the station.

It was an odd play. I'm glad that I saw it, but I wouldn't go see it again. Leaving the theater I thought to myself that it reminded me of some of my own writing, which is why I'm not recognized today as a play-write. The acting was fine, but...

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.
