The Lieutenant of Inishmore

MGC Artistic Director Michael Grandage directs a rare revival of Martin McDonagh's critically acclaimed, brilliant satire on terrorism, THE LIEUTENANT OF INISHMORE. Stage and screen actor Aidan Turner, best known for playing the title role in the BBC hit series Poldark, plays Mad Padraic, a terrorist deemed too violent to be a member of the IRA, in this hilarious, acute observation of violence in contemporary culture.

Who knocked Mad Padraic's cat over on a lonely road on the island of Inishmore and was it an accident? He'll want to know when he gets back from a stint of torture and chip-shop bombing in Northern Ireland: he loves that cat more than life itself.

This production follows Michael Grandage's award-winning production of McDonagh's The Cripple of Inishmaan in 2013.

MGC also present Red by John Logan, at Wyndham's Theatre from 4th May 2018.

    Great play - well acted - some “Irish” accents took a while to adjust to, but overall most enjoyable. Shame about the 15% agency fee!

Latest critic reviews

  • "This is comedy at its blackest... McDonagh's real gift is for pushing a situation to its most brutal extreme, and being funny with it."

    The Guardian

  • Put it this way - when the 35-year-old heartthrob (Aidan Turner) makes his entrance, there's an explosion of applause."

    The Telegraph

  • "A savagely funny satirical farce on the terrorist mentality. Turner does it proud with a performance that shows a masterful command of its Synge-meets-Tarantino tone. "
