Mick Dowd is hired one week a year to disinter the bones in certain sections of the local cemetery to make way for the new arrivals. As the time approaches for him to dig up those of his own late wife, strange rumors surrounding his involvement in her sudden death seven years ago begin to resurface. Populated by misfits and miscreants all digging for the truth, A Skull in Connemara is a blasphemously funny whodunit complete with flying skulls and bloody hatchets.

Jobsite is over the moon to finally complete the trilogy from acclaimed playwright and screenwriter (Six Shooter, In Bruges, Seven Psycopaths) Martin McDonagh that began with the very show they performed as resident company at the Straz Center! In 2003 Jobsite produced The Beauty Queen of Leenane, which won multiple Best of the Bay Awards and was named a Top 10 production by both The Tampa Tribune and Creative Loafing. In 2013 the company offered another of the Leenane trilogy, The Lonesome West, also to high acclaim. In addition to this trilogy Jobsite has also produced McDonagh’s The Pillowman (2006) and The Lieutenant of Inishmore (2009). McDonagh’s plays are undeniable favorites of the Jobsite faithful and the company is thrilled to once again bring his signature dark wit, kooky characters, on stage mayhem, and crackling dialogue back home.
