Inishmore opens tonight!

After a solid, full preview performance we’re chomping at the bit for a great run of this grisly black comedy by Oscar and Tony Award winner Martin McDonagh (In Bruges, The Beauty Queen of Leenane, The Pillowman).

Guns and gore are coming to County Galway and the tiny Aran Island of Inishmore …

“Mad Padraic” Osbourne returns home in a rush after a stint of torture and chip shop bombing to check in on his cat Wee Thomas, his best friend of 15 years, who he was told has fallen ill. When he finally arrives at the home of his father and discovers the cat is actually dead, he goes on a rampage the likes of which you’ve likely not seen on a stage.

Six guns, dozens of spent rounds, four dead fellas, two dead cats plus various and sundry other special effects fill the intimate Shimberg Playhouse stage surrounding (and soaking) a cast of old friends, local favorites and newcomers alike that are sure to dazzle.

At the conclusion of the preview performance, the audience instantly jumped to their feet – hooting, hollering and whistling for the one hour and forty-five minute spectacle they’d just witnessed.

Now it’s your turn. The Lieutenant of Inishmore is on stage now through April 12. Get your tickets fast, March 20-21 are already sold out this weekend, and not many tickets remain for March 19 or 22. We fully expect to sell out the entirety of this our opening weekend and hope it’s just a sign of things to come for our four-week run.

Visit us online click on any of the links for the show you’d like to follow – a press release/synopsis of the work, links to all the stories in the press on the show, read cast and crew bios and much more.

And a bonus for you who choose to come and support us opening weekend – inside the program you will see the first look at Jobsite’s 2009-2010 season. This information will not be released to the press until Monday, March 23.

Hope to see you soon at the theater!
