A Skull in Connemara
One of the freshest, most original new voices in the theatre to come along in years, Martin McDonagh has created a sensation in London and is now making a splash overseas. ACT is proud to present the American premiere of A Skull in Connemara, a black comedy of unapologizing surprises and unexpected depths.
For one week each autumn, Irishman Mick Dowd is hired to dig up the bones in parts of his local cemetery to make room for the new arrivals. When it comes time for him to move those of his own late wife, strange rumors begin to surface regarding his involvement in her sudden death seven years before. Told with brutal humor and wicked irony, McDonagh's unique gift of storytelling explores the secrets of souls that will thrill and chill you down to your bones.
