He'll want to know when he gets back from a stint of.

You know what I think I can hear 'em doing? It's not that I have anything against plays or theater, I just never really got around to finding a playwright I enjoyed enough to read over a novel. The plot was simple and contained, and the production is far from lavish, but the writing has enough lurid topics, profanity and whip smart dialogue to keep the audience going along for the ride unfazed. McDonagh is all about letting his actors and dialogue shine. I have not seen this play performed, but I could not put it down when I read it all in about 70 odd minutes last night. McDonagh hates being compared to Quentin Tarantino, so I won't explicitly compare the two in this review, but lets just say if you enjoy Mr. Tarantino's work, you are likely to love McDonagh's. That being said approach with caution. Ultraviolence, macabre humor and un-P. McDonagh, like many great playwright's before him, definitely has distinct types of characters that he writes for his scenarios. Or perhaps, he is just writing for specific actors. In "Behanding" it is made clear by the original casting that Sam Rockwell was Mervyn, but even without that list of premiere performers it was easy to read Mervyn as a Rockwell-McDonagh character the likes of Billy in "Seven Psychopaths" or Michal in "The Pillowman". Either way, it easy to see that Rockwell could have stolen the show with Mervyn's endearingly and deceptively irrelevant ramblings. In contrast to the perfect casting of Rockwell, I kept on seeing Woody Harrelson as Carmichael solely based on the character's age and intimidation level.

It is not difficult to draw loose comparisons between the behanded Carmichael and the unlegged Captain Ahab. Carmichael is undoubtedly a determined man, and his monomaniacal quest and soul-bearing monologues make it easy to see the human side of an apparent homicidal maniac. Looking back on the play now, "Behanding" may be less about the romanticism of obsession and the nobility of persistence but rather a farcical satire of the distinctly American sense of entitlement that almost all of the characters in the play possess.

After all is said and done, the audience will laugh harder than ever when they realize that these characters believe that they are entitled to a single thing. The author tried something new by setting the plot not in Ireland, but in the US. Sadly, it doesn't work.

McDonagh is brilliant when it comes to shaping characters and making them distinguishable from each other based on their actions, attitude and use of language. The play fails to do the same with the American language and mentality.

All characters seem to have the same voi A Behanding in Spokane simply does not live up to the the wit, dark humor, and suspense usually found in McDonagh's works. All characters seem to have the same voice. The plot itself lacks originality.

He was determined that he would succeed, that his writing would be produced, and — despite often harsh and cruel rejections — Martin persisted. By March, and the end of that first Beauty Queen production, I knew I had to become a theatre director.

In , I became an assistant director at Druid. Andrew Flynn.

No pause, beat, comma or full-stop is out of place. The landscape is dark, very dark, yet comedy, tragedy, tenderness all exist in a McDonagh character and play. But equally gasp and squirm and look away in disbelief. In , I set about developing my own work and career. I established a professional company, Decadent Theatre , and worked to develop and hone my directing skills.

Collectively, we are currently battling hard to master his wonderful rhythm In , with support from Galway Townhall, Cork Opera House and Millennium Forum Derry, I approached Martin with the desire to stage the first Irish production of his second Island play, The Lieutenant of Inishmore. Martin trusted me. The production was a large scale one with huge technical challenges but it received excellent reviews and went on to play for two national tours.

In the same producing partners commissioned a new touring production of The Lonesome West. This production garnered excellent reviews and has gone on to tour with varying casts in , and most recently in with Pat Shortt taking on the role of Mick Dowd.

Look at the state of you, off bawling like some fool of a girl. James Is a fella not supposed to bawl so, you take his fecking toenails off him? James Is toenails off just tinkering with me, so? The way you talk it sounds as if I took off a rake of them, when it was only two I took off, and them only small ones.

They were small. I do hate injections, I do. But, em. I have lost me train of thought now, so I have. The right or the left? James No, now. Come on, now.

In my eyes, like. James Marijuana to the students at the Tech I sell, and at fair rates. James Sure, everybody smokes marijuana nowadays.

James Well, maybe you should! It might calm you down! James Paul McCartney says it should be outright legalised! James He has statistics, Padraic! Padraic approaches him quickly with the razor.

James The right one! The right one! This may hurt. James screaming No. Padraic answers the phone, idling away from James, who is left shaking and whimpering behind him. Into phone. Dad, ya bastard, how are you? To James. How is all on Inishmore?

Good-oh, good-oh. Do I need your advice on planting bombs? I was pissed off, anyways. I think he does drink. Sure, why would the IRA be selling us any of their bombs? They need them themselves, sure. A splinter group is the best kind of group to splinter from anyways.

Put Wee Thomas on the phone. Ar, you fecker, ya! Padraic smashes the phone to pieces on the table, shoots the pieces a few times, then sits there crying quietly. James Is anything the matter, Padraic? Me best friend in the world, he is. He probably has ringworm. Is that serious, now? Just get him some ringworm pellets from the chemist and feed them him wrapped up in a bit of cheese. James Sure, drug pushers are the same as anybody underneath.

James Eh? James Em, Dominic.
