The Lonesome West is the final leg of the Leenane trilogy. I saw the first -The Beauty Queen of Leenane - a few years ago and enjoyed it so much that I grabbed the chance to see Troop Productions version of The Lonesome West, even if it was the final night. I have yet to see the middle play, A Skull in Connemara.
Martin McDonagh has a clever knack of bringing laughter into the darkest and bleakest of situations and the dark humour brought waves of laughter from the audience.
This was the first time I had seen something from Troop Production and it was a creditable show, with near perfect Irish accents that were still understandable. It was a credit to Brisbane’s top dialect coach Melissa Agnew. The actors too, understood their characters and presented them well in Georgina Greenhill’s detailed and atmospheric set enhanced by great lighting and sound.
