Following on from the hugely successful production of Martin McDonagh’s The Cripple of Inishmaan earlier this year, the Gaiety Theatre is delighted to present a major new production of McDonagh’s The Lieutenant of Inishmore for early next year. Directed by Andrew Flynn this exciting new production of The Lieutenant of Inishmore will run at the Gaiety Theatre from 27 January 2020 for a very limited run. Tickets are on sale now from the Gaiety Theatre and Ticketmaster.
Oscar Award-winning director and playwright Martin McDonagh’s work is known and loved by both theatre and film audiences alike (In Bruges, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri). Audiences flocked to see The Gaiety Theatre production of The Cripple of Inishmaan last spring.
Details of the sterling ensemble cast for The Lieutenant of Inishmore were announced earlier this week, which features exciting young stars of TV, film and theatre in Ireland and abroad today. Already making their mark on stages and TV screens across Ireland the cast includes Paul Mescal (BBC’s Normal People, The Great Gatsby), Aisling Kearns (Darklands, Asking For It), Alex Murphy (The Young Offenders), Cillian Ó Gairbhí (Blood, Darklands), Desmond Eastwood (Blackout, Normal People), Cillian Lenaghan (Blackout) and in his professional debut Pádraig O’Grady. They are joined by Don Wycherley in the role of Donny (Sing Street, Ballykissangel, Bachelor’s Walk).
About The Lieutenant of Inishmore: On a lonely road on the island of Inishmore, someone killed Mad Padraic’s cat. He'll want to know who did it when he gets back 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. Set in the 1990s, The Lieutenant of Inishmore is a clever satire on terrorism, the beautification of violence in contemporary culture and a hilarious farce in true McDonagh fashion.
Director Andrew Flynn is renowned for his productions of McDonagh’s work which include The Cripple of Inishmaan, The Pillowman and A Skull in Connemara, which received 3 nominations in The Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards. Other credits to date include Port Authority by Conor McPherson, The Thing About December by Jarlath Tivnan in collaboration with Andrew Flynn, The Mai by Marina Carr, Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me by Frank McGuinness, Pumpgirl by Abbie Spallen, The Weir by Conor McPherson, The Dead School by Pat McCabe, Defender Of The Faith by Stuart Carolan, Port Authority by Conor McPhearson (for which he was nominated as Best Director at The Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards), Doubt by John Patrick Shanley (2 nominations in The Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards), Eden by Eugene O’Brien, Faith Healer by Brian Friel, Philadelphia Here I Come by Brian Friel and Dockers by Martin Lynch.

25 years ago, 7 minutes changed the face of Irish dancing forever. The Eurovision interval act performance gave millions of people a new and exciting glimpse of the future of Irish dance. It could have ended there, but it didn’t – in fact producer Moya Doherty, composer Bill Whelan and director John McColgan were only beginning their Riverdance journey, a journey which has already lasted 25 years and one we invite you to celebrate with us in February 2020 when Riverdance - 25th Anniversary show will premiere at 3Arena Dublin, the exact spot where it all began.

Now it is coming home to celebrate another milestone on that journey.
Twenty-five years on, composer Bill Whelan has rerecorded his mesmerising soundtrack while producer Moya Doherty and director John McColgan have completely reimagined the ground-breaking show with innovative and spectacular lighting, projection, stage and costume designs.
