The Lieutenant of Inishmore London Noel Coward Theatre

The Lieutenant of InishmoreWho knocked Mad Padraic’s cat 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 that cat more than life itself.

The Lieutenant of Inishmore by Martin McDonagh receives a rare revival in the West End, opening at the Noël Coward Theatre on 4th July 2018, with previews from 23rd June, and running until 8th September. It follows Michael Grandage’s award-winning production of McDonagh’s The Cripple of Inishmaan at the same address in 2013, which later transferred to Broadway. Aidan Turner stars as Mad Padraic, a terrorist deemed too violent to be a member of the IRA. The play, which premiered at the RSC in 2001, is a brilliant satire on terrorism, an acute observation of violence in contemporary culture and a hilarious farce.
