Aidan Turner (Poldark, The Hobbit) comes to the West End for the first time in The Lieutenant of Inishmore, Oscar winner Martin McDonagh’s dark comedy playing at the Noel Coward Theatre 23 June- 8 September 2018.

Mad Padraic (Poldark’s Aidan Turner) is a terrorist. A terrorist the IRA rejected for being too violent. While off on a bit of routine business, torturing a Belfast drug dealer, Mad Padraic gets a call that changes everything.

Mad Padraic rushes back home after receiving a call from his father that his beloved cat, and only friend, Wee Thomas is doing poorly. What Padraic doesn’t know is just how poorly Wee Thomas is. Wee Thomas’s brains have been squeezed out. When Mad Padraic finds out will it push him over the edge? Will justice be meted out? Will Padraic ever be able to open his heart again?

MGC Artistic Director Michael Grandage will direct this rare West End revival of Martin McDonagh's critically acclaimed The Lieutenant of Inishmore. The production follows Michael Grandage’s award-winning production of McDonagh's The Cripple of Inishmaan in 2013.

This production follows Michael Grandage's award-winning production of McDonagh's The Cripple of Inishmaan in 2013. Directed by Michael Grandage with set and costume design by Christopher Oram, lighting by Neil Austin and sound and music by Adam Cork.

This play was hilarious. The whole of theatre was in stiches. Aidan Turner was fantastic.

Stella Harding11th September

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the play and our visit to the Noël Cowerd Theatre. We thought that all the cast were excellent and would recommend the play to everyone (perhaps not the squeamish though!) Great job - thank you!!

Janet Lelliott10th September

I watched this show 3 times because it was quite simply the best one I have seen. Very funny, relevant and professional. The whole cast were superb; I've been a fan of Aidan Turner for a long time and he undoubtedly shone in the role buit his fellow cast members provided excellent support. My only regret is that a DVD wasn't made. Hopefully you will consider staging the play again, you certainly wouldn't have any trouble selling tickets. I and all my fellow Fan Club members would fill the theatre over and over again , just like we have just done.

I have seen this show 3 times over the summer, simply brilliant. Great production, supberb cast & Aidan Turner excelled as the lead character. I recommended it to everyone. It has sadly now finished its run.

Sandra Brocklebank-Wickes9th September

Aidan Turner et al were excellent in this comedy.... sadly now finished... the staff at the theatre could do with some customer service training, hence 4 stars and not 5 ....
