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

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.
