A Skull in Connemara
by Martin McDonagh
Mick, an Irish gravedigger, is about to disinter the bones of his late wife, which in turn resurrects rumours that she might have been murdered — by him. If his neighbours can’t be sure of the truth, they’ll be happy to make it up. A darkly funny play from the writer and director of the hit movie Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

It’s not about a chicken. While John is taking “a break” from his boyfriend, he’s surprised to find himself attracted to a woman he meets on the way to work. Sleeping with her only complicates matters. He tries to sort things out, but that’s not easy when your sexual identity is wobbling about drunkenly. “Mercilessly accurate, wickedly funny and strangely touching.” – Financial Times
