The Lonesome West

The Lonesome West
Written by Martin McDonagh
Directed by Barry Hooper
11 – 16 March 2010

The Lonesome West was first presented as a Druid Theatre company and Royal Court co-production in the summer of 1997. Valene and Coleman, two brothers living alone in their father’s house after his recent death, find it impossible to exist without massive and violent disputes over the most mundane and innocent of topics. Only father Welsh, the local young priest, is prepared to try to reconcile the two before their petty squabblings spiral into vicious and bloody carnage.
