Culture Vulture: The Lieutenant of Inishmore
Join Gay4Play for our monthly Culture Vulture night exploring the great theatre that Sydney has to offer.
Ruthless enforcer “Mad” Padraic is considered too crazy for the IRA and he’s sorely trying the patience of his INLA comrades.
Padraic cares about one thing, and one thing only – and it’s not the fight for Irish independence. It’s his little black cat, Wee Thomas.
When he learns that Wee Thomas has been killed, Paidraic rushes home to the island of Inishmore, much to the relief of the Belfast drug-pusher whose nipples he was about to remove.
But as Padraic pursues revenge, and bodies pile up in his wake, his soft spot for Wee Thomas may prove to be his downfall.
This brazen and unapologetically blood-curdling farce combines comedy and violence in a darkly funny portrait of rivalries among terrorists for whom killing, torturing and bombing are just day-jobs.
“One of the greatest and most improbable comedies of the decade” The Guardian.
7.30pm New Theatre, 542 King Street, Newtown.
Bookings must be finalised by 10th April.
