Der einsame Westen - von Martin McDonagh

Theater Theater Schauspiel Drama Theatergenre Tragödie
In the organizer's words:

In the Irish village of Leenane, brothers Coleman and Valene Connor return to their shared home after the funeral of their father. The everyday life of both is permeated by constant quarrels, which escalate more and more each time.

Father Welsh tries his best to mend the broken relationship between the two Connors, but fails permanently. Frustrated, he consoles himself with donations from Valenes' liquor stocks, which Coleman generously offers him. The alcohol stock is replenished by Girleen, who earns money by selling liquor and has a soft spot for the father.

After a tragic incident in the village, Father Welsh makes a last desperate attempt to get the eternal quarrelers to reconcile.

With Der einsame Westen (Original: The Lonesome West), Uwe Hoppe stages a play about the complicated relationship between two brothers who, despite their deep-seated enmity, try to get their lives together.

After TheBeauty Queen of Leenane (original: Beauty Queen of Leenane) and A Skull in Connemara (original: Skull in Connemara), Martin McDonagh brings his Leenane trilogy to a close withThe Lonesome West.

As a director and screenwriter, Martin McDonagh enjoyed success with his films Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Seeing Bruges...And Die. His last film Banshees of Inisherin received an Oscar nomination and the Golden Globe Award for Best Picture.
