Academy Award-winner Martin McDonagh has written this smart, thrilling and hilarious new play that won the Olivier Award, London's equivalent of the Tony Award. Everyone in New York is buzzing about how great it is. The Lieutenant of Inishmore is a brilliant tale about a ruthless soldier and the one thing he loves more than anything else in the world...his little black cat, Wee Thomas. It all builds to a stunning surprise that has audiences laughing in disbelief. You've got to see it to believe it.
