Review:

“Martin McDonagh's The Leenane Trilogy, one of the great events of the contemporary Irish theatre.” ―Irish Times

“McDonagh's writing is pitiless but compassionate: he casts a cold, hard, but understanding eye on relationships made of mistrust, hesitation, resentment and malevolence.” ―Sunday Times of London

“McDonagh's gift is at its most naked and infectious . . . it leaves you giddy with gruesome exhilaration.” ―Financial Times (A Skull in Connemara)

“The play combines manic energy and physical violence in a way that is both hilarious and viscerally exciting.” ―Daily Telegraph (The Lonesome West)

“A star is born, bright and blazing, confident, individual and shockingly accomplished” ―Sunday Times
