One of McDonagh's Connemara trilogy of plays. Two brothers living in their father's house after his recent death, find it practically impossible to exist without violent disputes over the most mundane and innocent of topics. Only Father Welsh, the young local priest, bids for reconciliation.
This Student Edition features expert and helpful annotation, including a scene-by-scene summary, a detailed commentary on the dramatic, social and political context, and on the themes, characters, language and structure of the play, as well a list of suggested reading and questions for further study and a review of performance history. The Lonesome West was first presented as a Druid Theatre company and Royal Court co-production in the summer of 1997, and is the final part of McDonagh's Leenane trilogy.
