Oscar Award-winning director and playwright Martin McDonagh's work is known and loved by both theatre and film audiences alike (In Bruges, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri). Audiences flocked to see The Gaiety Theatre production of The Cripple of Inishmaan last spring.

On a lonely road on the island of Inishmore, someone killed Mad Padraic's cat. He'll want to know who did it when he gets back from a stint of torture and chip-shop bombing in Northern Ireland. He loves his cat more than life itself, and someone is going to pay. Set in the 1990s, The Lieutenant of Inishmore is a clever satire on terrorism, the beautification of violence in contemporary culture and a hilarious farce in true McDonagh fashion.
