Enter to win tickets to The Lieutenant of Inishmore starring Chris Pine!

“If Monty Python has ever tackled the issue of Irish terrorism, they might have created something as wild, as brilliant and as weirdly exhilarating as The Lieutenant of Inishmore.” -NY Daily News

Olivier Award-winner Martin McDonagh (The Pillowman) makes comedy from carnage in this highly theatrical romp. Padraic (played by Chris Pine) is a handsome, dedicated terrorist deemed too mad for the IRA. He takes a break from torturing “valid targets” and blowing up fast food restaurants when he hears that his best friend in the world, a beloved cat, is doing poorly.

Critics raved and gasped over this 2006 Tony Award® Best Play nominee. You can decide for yourself when the original Broadway director stages this daring and disturbingly intoxicating dark comedy.

“The Lieutenant of Inishmore,” by Academy Award-winning, Olivier Award-winning and Tony Award-nominated Martin McDonagh, is a blistering, graphic satire on violence set in 1993 on the rocky island of Inishmore. Padraic (Pine), a hard-boiled terrorist, has been away in Northern Ireland with his busy schedule of torture and assorted nationalist mayhem, but he is lured home to Inishmore by the news that his beloved cat, Wee Thomas, is doing poorly. When Padraic finds out Wee Thomas has been murdered, he initiates a cycle of revenge-killing that threatens everyone in his path, except perhaps the love-struck Mairead (Zoe Perry), a 16-year-old terrorist groupie with a BB gun.
