Martin McDonagh

The Pillowman

The Pillowman

★★★☆☆ Ambitious:
Spirited and clever, EUTC’s production of Martin McDonagh’s The Pillowman has all the requisite cartoon violence, but in the end lacks the necessary punch.

The Lieutenant of Inishmore

★★★☆☆ Pumping:
Gleefully raw and pumping gore, In Your Face Theatre’s immersive production of Martin McDonagh’s bloodbath-thriller, The Lieutenant of Inishmore, lives right up to the company’s name.

Theatre Review – The Beauty Queen of Leenane

Theatre Review – The Beauty Queen of Leenane

★★★★☆:
Hilarious, dark and utterly brutal, playwright Martin McDonagh’s prize-winning look at late 20th century life in rural Ireland is given a most beguiling outing at the Royal Lyceum, under Tony Cownie’s direction.
