Written by Martin McDonagh – Directed by Sean Faloon.
Bickering brothers, Coleman and Valene share a house in the wild west of Ireland. One
obsesses about his religious ornaments and his precious poteen; the other thinks only
of his stomach, regularly crashing funerals in his quest for a free sausage roll.
Their local priest, troubled by a spate of murders in the area, tries and fails to convince the
squabbling pair to set aside their petty differences. But when the brothers vow to be nicer to one another and wipe the slate clean but confessing to a string of vile misdemeanours towards one another, things can only degenerate into vicious and bloody carnage.
The Lonesome West is the third play in Martin McDonagh’s bleak but blackly comic Leenane trilogy.
