Chris Pine (Star Trek) leads the large cast.
Padraic (Chris 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.
Academy Award-winning (In Bruges), Olivier Award-winning and Tony Award-nominated Martin McDonagh (The Pillowman), makes comedy from carnage in this highly theatrical - and unapologetically bloody - romp.
The cast of The Lieutenant of Inishmore features (in alphabetical order) Ian Alda, Andrew Connolly, Coby Getzug, Seán G. Griffin, Kevin Kearns, Zoe Perry, Chris Pine and Brett Ryback.
Critics raved and audiences gasped over this 2006 Tony Award® Best Play nominee. You can decide for yourself when original Broadway director Wilson Milam stages this daring and disturbingly intoxicating dark comedy.

You ARE? Oh my God I’m so glad you did.” More
Audience Feedback about The Lieutenant of Inishmore
The writing and the production were top notch...Overall, a bloody great show.

An insulting waste of my time...mindless trash...Sensationalism, torture, and bad language do not make up for a badly written script with a mindless plot.
