The Lonesome West

Presented by Troop Productions

After the death of their father, two brothers, vindictive Coleman and miserly Valene, are thrust upon each other. Unable to live together, but equally unable to live apart, they bicker, squabble and fight over anything. Well-meaning but troubled priest, Father Welsh, desperately attempts to reconcile the brothers fearing their violence will spiral towards a bloody end. Girleen, a beautiful young school girl, provides hope for a brighter future, if only the men can find compassion in their hearts.

The Lonesome West is a darkly irreverent but uproariously funny black comedy, from Martin McDonagh, the Academy Award-winning author of In Bruges.
