The Lieutenant of Inishmore

From €21
27th Jan. - 22nd Feb.

Following on from the hugely successful production of Martin McDonagh’s The Cripple of Inishmaan earlier this year, the Gaiety Theatre is delighted to announce a major new production of McDonagh’s The Lieutenant of Inishmore for early 2020. Directed by Andrew Flynn this exciting new production of The Lieutenant of Inishmore will run at the Gaiety Theatre from 27 January 2020 for a very limited run. Tickets go on sale this Friday 19 July from the Gaiety Theatre and Ticketmaster.  

Oscar Award-winning director and playwright Martin McDonagh’s work is known and loved by both theatre and film audiences alike (In Bruges, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri). Audiences flocked to see The Gaiety Theatre production of The Cripple of Inishmaan last spring.

About The Lieutenant of Inishmore: On a lonely road on the island of Inishmore, someone killed Mad Padraic’s cat. He’ll want to know who did it when he gets back from a stint of torture and chip-shop bombing in Northern Ireland. He loves his cat more than life itself, and someone is going to pay. Set in the 1990s, The Lieutenant of Inishmore is a clever satire on terrorism, the beautification of violence in contemporary culture and a hilarious farce in true McDonagh fashion. 

Director Andrew Flynn is renowned for his productions of McDonagh’s work which include The Cripple of Inishmaan, The Pillowman and A Skull in Connemara, which received 3 nominations in The Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards.
