THE LIEUTENANT OF INISHMORE

REHEARSED READINGS

Rehearsed Readings are not full-scale productions like our spring, summer, and winter productions, but are instead a chance to experience a theatrical piece for a reduced price and enjoy a drink in a cabaret-style setting. Venues vary, but usually have space for 40-50 people and readings are usually only performed once, so tickets sell out quickly!

Our rehearsed readings are performed with minimal set, lighting, props, costumes, and sound effects. The actors perform with a script in their hand and have rehearsed together just a few times. Rehearsed readings are sometimes later transferred to a larger venue for a full production, but that is not always the case. 

All tickets include a drink and some venues also offer free small snacks. Your seat might also be at a small table. All rehearsed readings are 'general admission', which means seats cannot be selected at the time of booking and are allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis. Typically rehearsed readings start slightly earlier than our full-scale productions, so check the details below to make sure you're on time! Doors usually open 30 minutes before the start time, unless otherwise stated below.

THE LIEUTENANT OF INISHMORE
SYNOPSIS

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 returns from a stint of torture and chip-shop bombing in Northern Ireland: he loves his cat more than life itself and someone is going to pay. This dark comedy combines razor-sharp dialogue with a twisting plot while acting as a commentary on terrorism and violence in contemporary society.


The Lieutenant of Inishmore has been produced twice in the West End, winning the Laurence Olivier award for Best Comedy in 2003; and on Broadway, where it received a Tony Award. McDonagh is also well-known for writing the films In Bruges, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, and the 2022 film The Banshees of Inisherin.


Please note: This show contains graphic violence and strong language, and may not be suitable for children under 16. Parental discretion is advised.
