Mick Dowd – Fred Preston
Maryjohnny Rafferty – Lisa Berry

Fridays, May 22 and 29, 8pm

Set in a rural Ireland so blighted by rancour, ignorance and spite, that even the local priest admits ‘God Himself seems to have no jurisdiction here’. A Skull in Connemara is packed with dark humour, linguistic wit and gratuitous skull smashing.

Tickets for the Show will be on sale in a bit from Torquay Visitor Information Centre at Surfworld – we’ll keep you posted!!

*A Skull in Connemara*, by Martin McDonagh, Directed by Glen Barton 

*A Skull in Connemara* is the second of Martin McDonagh's renowned Leenane Trilogy, set in a rural Ireland so blighted by rancour, ignorance and spite, that even the local priest admits God Himself seems to have no jurisdiction here. Martin McDonagh recaptures the violence, humour and darkness of the Ireland of his childhood in this searing trilogy. 

*A Skull in Connemara* is full of a stinging delight in itself, is self-consciously black and packed with nastiness, linguistic wit and gratuitous skull smashing. The play follows the story of Mick Dowd, a gravedigger charged each autumn with disinterring bones from his local cemetery to make space for new tenants. When Mick has to dig up the grave of his wife, dead these past seven years, it unearths muffled rumours about Mick's role in her sudden death. 

Performance dates May 21, 22, 23, 24, 28, 29, 30.
