About The Lieutenant of Inishmore

Directed by Andrew Flynn, this exciting new production of The Lieutenant of Inishmore will run at the Gaiety Theatre, Dublin from 27 January 2020 for a very limited run.

On a lonely road on the island of Inishmore, someone killed Mad Padraic’s cat. He'll want to know who did it when he gets back from a stint of torture and chip-shop bombing in Northern Ireland. He loves his cat more than life itself, and someone is going to pay. Set in the 1990s, The Lieutenant of Inishmore is a clever satire on terrorism, the beautification of violence in contemporary culture and a hilarious farce in true McDonagh fashion.

Director Andrew Flynn is renowned for his productions of McDonagh’s work which include The Cripple of Inishmaan, The Pillowman and A Skull in Connemara, which received 3 nominations in The Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards.
