    Synopsis: 

    The Atlantic Theater Company’s production of Martin McDonagh’s The Lieutenant of Inishmore, moves to Broadway’s Lyceum theatre. Wilson Milam directs.
    McDonagh’s scorchingly black comedy is set in 1993 in County Galway on the rocky island of Inishmore, off the coast of Ireland. Padraic is a terrorist with no feeling for those he blows up, but has an obsessive attachment to Thomas, his beloved cat. But someone has killed poor wee Thomas. Was it an accident or an execution? Either way, the death must be concealed before ‘Mad Padraic’ returns from a stint of torture and bombing. Otherwise the recriminations will be horrifying

    'The Lieutenant of Inishmore': Blood and Glee in Rural Ireland

    Ben Brantley

    May 4, 2006: Blood winds up on pretty much every surface in "The Lieutenant of Inishmore," Martin McDonagh's gleeful, gruesome play about political terrorism in rural Ireland, which won the Olivier Award (the British equivalent of the Tony) for best comedy. The red stuff is splashed, spattered and smeared over walls, floors, furniture, clothes, skin and cat's fur. The fur is the main thing. For it is a mutilated cat that sets off the Euripidean cycle of murderous revenge that occupies two fast hours of hit-and-run traffic on the stage.
