Michael Grandage will direct Poldark star Aidan Turner in a new production of Martin McDonagh‘s satire on terrorism.
Who knocked Mad Padraic’s cat over on a lonely road on the island of Inishmore and was it an accident? He’ll want to know when he gets back from a stint of torture and chip-shop bombing in Northern Ireland: he loves that cat more than life itself.
This new production follows Michael Grandage’s production of The Cripple on Inishmaan also by Martin McDonagh, starring Daniel Radcliffe in 2013.
The cast for The Lieutenant of Inishmore is to be led by Aidan Turner making his West End debut and who is best known for his role in BBC’s Poldark. He last appeared on the London stage at the Barbican in 2005 in a production of Sean O’Casey’s The Plough and the Stars.
Running at the Noel Coward Theatre from June 2018, Michael Grandage’s production is also set to include set and costume designs by Christopher Oram, lighting by Neil Austin, and sound and music by Adam Cork.
