The Lieutenant of Inishmore at the Noel Coward Theatre starring Aidan Turner
Michael Grandage directs a rare revival of Martin McDonagh’s critically acclaimed, brilliant satire on terrorism, The Lieutenant of Inishmore.
Stage and screen actor Aidan Turner, best known for playing the title role in the BBC hit series Poldark, plays Mad Padraic, a terrorist deemed too violent to be a member of the IRA, in this hilarious, acute observation of violence in contemporary culture.
The Lieutenant of Inishmore will run from 23 June 2018 until 8 September 2018 at the Noel Coward Theatre.
Who knocked Mad Padraic’s cat over on a lonely road on the island of Inishmore and was it an accident? He’ll want to know when he gets back from a stint of torture and chip-shop bombing in Northern Ireland: he loves that cat more than life itself.
The cast is lead by Aidan Turner (BBC One Series Poldark, BBC Three Series Being Human).
Full casting to be announced.
Directed by Michael Grandage with set and costume designs by Christopher Oram, lighting by Neil Austin, and sound and music by Adam Cork. Playwright: Martin McDonagh
