A SKULL IN CONNEMARA
A drama by Martin McDonagh
Directed by Doug Brautigam
May 13-28, 2005
For one week each autumn, Mick Dowd is hired to disinter the bones in certain sections of his local cemetery to make way for the new arrivals. As the time approaches for him to dig up those of his own late wife, strange rumours regarding his involvement in her sudden death seven years ago gradually begin to resurface.
“Mr. McDonagh’s great strength is that he combines a love of traditional storytelling with the savage ironic humour of the modern generation.” -The Guardian.
