About the Play:

The Lonesome West is a full length drama by Martin McDonagh. The play 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 the most 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.

Cast: 1 woman, 3 men

What people say:

"Mr. McDonagh's great strength is that he combines a love of traditional story-telling with the savage ironic humour of the modern generation … in the extraordinary The Lonesome West, two brothers, one of whom has killed their father, are closeted together in undying hostility like a penned-up Cain and Abel." — The Guardian (UK)

"The Lonesome West … represents a leap forward in ambition and achievement for McDonagh … [it] offers…in-depth examination of character and is, in the end, a moving and complicated examination of redemption that might even offer a glimmer—a wee distant glimmer—of hope." — Variety

"The play combines manic energy and physical violence in a way that is both hilarious and viscerally exciting." — Daily Telegraph (London)

"Martin McDonagh is both a powerful writer of staying power and an individual talent within a powerful tradition ... His is a voice you will want to hear again." — The Sunday Times (London)
