It’s the early 1990s, the Northern Ireland peace process is taking its faltering first steps, and INLA man Mad Padraic is hard at work pulling out the toenails of Belfast drug pusher James, when the news comes through that his beloved cat, Wee Thomas, is poorly. So instead of slicing off James’s right nipple, as planned, he heads back home to the island of Inishmore.

Martin McDonagh’s plays are compellingly in your face – he has an Oscar and a whole lot of Oliviers and everything. The Lieutenant of Inishmore is no exception, with a script populated exclusively by the insane and the unpleasant and a cat.
