We saw the final showing of The Lieutenant of Inishmore at Southern Rep. It was a strange play: very funny and very violent. Some people actually walked out during the penultimate scene, which was bloody enough in its own right. The final scene was completely over-the-top. Still I’d recommend it to anyone who isn’t too queasy with regard to gore.

  1. Humm…I’ve never seen a violent bloody “Stage” play. Most of the violence I’ve seen on stage had been masked by dimming stage lights and loud blasts and explosions…Grapes of Wrath, Westside Story. Might have to wait for this one to come to the more subdued big screen.
