The Lieutenant of Inishmore
Who knocked Wee Thomas over on the lonely road in Inishmore, and was it an accident? 'Mad Padraic' will 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' is a brilliant satire on terrorism, a powerful corrective to the beautification of violence in contemporary culture, and a hilarious farce. It premiered at the RSC's The Other Place, Stratford-upon-Avon, in April 2001.

Set in a 1993 rural Ireland of dead cats, IRA splinter groups, dead-eye teenage girls with air rifles and the funniest kind of madness, this is the best play I’ve read in recent memory. Would love to see a production. Read full review

i just wanted to give it 4 stars just because it's not as good as "pillowman"...but it has In Bruges's Violence and it was so funny like other Mcdonagh's stage-plays and screenplays... so i should give it all 5 stars Read full review
