The Lonesome West (2018)

"Can’t help laughing … acutely delivered … gleefully grotesque" - The Irish Times


Presented by The Everyman
31 JUL – 25 AUG 2018

From the pen of Oscar-nominated writer Martin McDonagh to The Everyman stage!

A brand-new production of the brilliant black comedy The Lonesome West by Martin McDonagh.

The third play in McDonagh’s smash hit Leenane Trilogy, The Lonesome West, is that finest brand of black comedy that will make you laugh when you really shouldn’t. With explosive moments and the darkest humour, it tells the story of two feuding bachelor brothers and attempts to civilise them by the despairing local priest, and his devoted sidekick Girleen.

Following the success of Lovers (2015), The Factory Girls (2016) and Dancing at Lughnasa (2017), The Everyman succeeded again to maintain its tradition of producing top-quality theatre with McDonagh’s hit comedy.
