As a production, The Lieutenant of Inishmore is brutal and violent, yet somehow has a charm about it that keeps the audience successfully engaged from beginning to end. Who knew violence on this scale could be this funny?
As ever, if you’re insatiable for new theatre, there are plenty of openings for you. In London, Space Dogs plays a short run at Theatre N16, Laura Linney makes her London stage debut in My Name Is Lucy Barton at the Bridge Theatre.
With their production of Labour of Love about to complete its run, the Michael Grandage Company (MGC) today announces two new productions for 2018 – Red by John Logan, and The Lieutenant of Inishmore by Martin McDonagh, both directed by the company’s Artistic Director Michael Grandage.
