Why See The Lieutenant of Inishmore?

Aidan Turner stars in rare revival

Poldark's very own Aidan Turner makes his West End Debut in a rare revival of Martin McDonagh's dark comedy. Sizzling star of stage and screen, Turner will take on the role of Mad Padraic, an Irishman with terrorist tendencies whose proclivities are deemed too twisted even for the IRA.

Set in Ireland in 1993, The Lieutenant of Inishmore is a satirical observation of violence and terrorism in contemporary culture through a dark yet thoroughly funny script that begins when the renegade Mad Padraic returns home upon discovering his cat is ill...

What is it about?

The Northern Ireland peace process is taking its first faltering steps, and Mad Padraic is hard at work pulling out the toenails of James a local drug dealer. But, when the news comes through that Mad Padraic's beloved cat, Wee Thomas, is poorly. Pausing the torture to journey back to his home island of Inishmore, Padriac is crushed when he discovers Thomas isn't just sick, he's been brutally murdered.

Intent on revenge, even if it means destroying his own father, Padraic steps up to the fore. But just as he's about to end his poor pa's life, there's an unexpected knock at the door.
