The Lonesome West


Martin McDonagh

Directed by Mike Rogerson
assisted by Rhianne Statom-Barnett

12th - 19th May 2012

A contemporary Irish black comedy.

The Lonesome West features the constantly arguing brothers Coleman and Valene, whose father has just died in a shotgun "accident." Valene is only interested in his religious ornaments, and drinking poteen. Coleman is only interested in eating, and attends funerals to collect free sausage rolls and vol au vents. Only Father Welsh, the alcoholic parish priest, attempts to fix their relationship, but his advice mostly goes unheard.
