Opening March 24th
"Wickedly funny and brilliantly abrasive. ...[McDonagh] loves to push both feeling and humor to the extreme." -New York Times
Another macabre mini-masterpiece! For one week each autumn, Mick Dowd is hired to disinter bones in sections of his local cemetery to make way for the new arrivals. But as the time approaches for him to dig up the bones of his own late wife, rumors about his possible involvement in her sudden death seven years ago resurface. Populated by misfits and miscreants all digging for the truth, A Skull in Connemara is a blasphemously funny whodunit complete with flying skulls and bloody hatchets.
"Mr. McDonagh's great strength is that he combines a love of traditional storytelling with the savage ironic humour of the modern generation…In A SKULL IN CONNEMARA, a gravedigger, whose job is to disinter the bones of seven-year-old corpses and smash them to pulp, is hotly suspected of killing his wife." —The Guardian (UK).
