WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

MCG Artistic Director Michael Grandage directs stage and screen actor Aidan Turner in The Lieutenant of Inishmore, Martin McDonagh’s critically acclaimed, brilliant satire on terrorism.

Mad Padraic may be a terrorist deemed too violent to be a member of the IRA, but he has one weakness: he loves his cat more than anything in the world. When he returns from bombing and torturing in Northern Ireland to find that his cat has been run over on the island of Inishmore, Mad Padraic will be seeking some answers to the fate of Wee Thomas.

Best known for playing the title role in BBC’s hit series Poldark, Aidan Turner plays mad Padraic in this hilarious, acute observation of violence in contemporary culture. The production comes on the heels of Michael Grandage’s award-winning production of another McDonagh play, The Cripple of Inishman, in 2013.
