Toronto Irish Players doing The Lonesome West

The next production on Alumnae Theatre’s main stage will be the Toronto Irish Players, opening Feb 23 with “The Lonesome West”. It’s part 3 of Martin McDonagh’s trilogy (about the murder-prone inhabitants of an Irish town called Leenane), following “The Beauty Queen of Leenane” and the rarely-performed “A Skull in Connemara”. Here’s a drinking game for “The Lonesome West”: take a swig every time the actors mention poteen!

The Lonesome West is directed for TIP by Jim Ivers and produced by Geraldine Browne, and runs February 23 – March 10 on the Alumnae Theatre main stage (70 Berkeley Street, at Berkeley and Adelaide St. East, Toronto).
