THE LONESOME WEST
The Lonesome West is the third installment The Leenane Trilogy by contemporary Irish playwright Martin McDonagh. All three plays depict the shocking and murderous goings-on in the western Ireland town of Leenane. In this darkly comic tale McDonagh invites us to join Valen and Coleman, two brothers living alone in their father’s house after his recent death. The brothers find it impossible to exist without the most massive and violent disputes over the most mundane and innocent of topics. Only Father Welsh, the priest, is prepared to try to reconcile the two before their petty squabbling spiral into vicious and bloody carnage
