The Lieutenant of InishmoreReturn

Playwright Martin McDonagh Producer San Jose Stage Company  [Website] Description This edge of your seat satirical comedy jabs at the absurdity of terrorist mentality. ‘The Lieutenant of Inishmore' is a comedic tale of the extent one Irish Liberation Officer will go to find justice for his feline companion. Set in 1993 the play follows “Mad Padraic” on his quest for revenge. After receiving threatening news regarding his beloved cat ‘Wee Thomas’ he immediately returns to his home on the Island of Inishmore. Fueled by passion, he loves his cat more than life itself and someone is going to pay, Padraic sets out on a mission to avenge ‘Wee Thomas’ by any means necessary. This darkly comedic journey will have audiences captivated in both shock and laughter.

“I suppose I walk that line between comedy and cruelty because I think one illuminates the other. We're all cruel, aren't we? We are all extreme in one way or another at times and that's what drama, since the Greeks, has dealt with.” -- Martin McDonagh
