The Lonesome West, by the award-winning playwright Martin McDonagh, is a dark comedy of brotherly love set amongst the belligerent neighbors of the Western Ireland town of Leenane, which is fast becoming the murder capital of the world. An idealistic young priest stumbles into a simmering conflict between brothers Coleman and Valene Connor as they enact an endless cycle of petty grudges. Father Welsh eventually puts his life on the line in an attempt to reconcile the feuding siblings. Nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play, The Lonesome West concludes McDonagh’s Leenane trilogy.
