Mullingar Theatre Lab in cooperation with FEST Frankfurt presents The Lonesome West. Following on from their multi award winning run in the 3 act drama circuit of Ireland. The third play in McDonagh’s smash hit Leenane Trilogy, The Lonesome West is that finest brand of black comedy that will make you laugh when you really shouldn’t. With explosive moments and the darkest humour, it tells the story of two feuding bachelor brothers and attempts to civilise them by the despairing local priest, and his devoted sidekick Girleen. Martin MacDonagh is a much acclaimed writer for the stage and also for film where he can count “In Bruges” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” among his best works. The Lonesome West ran on Broadway in 1999 and received a Tony Award nomination for Best Play.
The performance dates are 5, 6, and 7 July 2019 in Kulturhaus Frankfurt.
