The Lieutenant of Inishmore

Wollongong Workshop Theatre Present an amateur production of The Lieutenant of Inishmore by Martin McDonagh and directed by Darcy Scrine from Fri 22 Feb to 9 March 2019.

Ruthless enforcer “Mad” Padraic is considered too crazy for the IRA and he’s sorely trying the patience of his INLA comrades.

Padraic cares about one thing, and one thing only – and it’s not the fight for Irish independence. It’s his little black cat, Wee Thomas.

When he learns that Wee Thomas has become unwell, Paidraic rushes home to the island of Inishmore but will his soft spot for Wee Thomas become his downfall

This brazen and unapologetically blood-curdling farce combines comedy and violence in a darkly funny portrait of rivalries among terrorists for whom killing, torturing and bombing are just day-jobs.
