"Come on in ahead for yourselves. I'm just in the middle of shooting me Dad."
Who knocked the cat belonging to "Mad Padraic" over on a lonely road on the island of Inishmore and was it an accident? He'll want to know when he gets back from a stint of torture and chip-shop bombing in Northern Ireland: he loves his cat more than life itself.
The Lieutenant of Inishmore premiered at the RSC's The Other Place, Stratford-upon-Avon, in April 2001.
Martin McDonagh is one of Britain’s finest young playwrights and won a prestigious Olivier Award for The Lieutenant of Inishmore, which has had successful runs in both the USA and the UK.
