MGC today announce the full casting for Michael Grandage’s production of Martin McDonagh’s The Lieutenant of Inishmore which opens at the Noël Coward Theatre on 4 July, with previews from 23 June and runs until 8 September. Joining Aidan Turner (Padraic) completing the all Irish cast are Denis Conway (Donny), Will Irvine (Christy), Brian Martin (James), Daryl McCormack (Brendan) Julian Moore-Cook (Joey), Charlie Murphy (Mairead), and Chris Walley (Davey).
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.
The Lieutenant of Inishmore joins Grandage’s production of John Logan’s Red with Alfred Molina and Alfred Enoch in the West End. Red opens at the Wyndham’s Theatre on 15 May, with previews from 4 May, and runs until 28 July.
