Join us for “The Lonesome West” by Martin McDonagh performed by Enniskillen Theatre Company in the 2024 Bostik All Ireland Confined Drama Finals.


Set in a remote Irish town in the late 1990s, this darkly comedic and intense family drama revolves around the dysfunctional relationship between brothers Coleman and Valene as they navigate the aftermath of their father’s death. Only Father Welsh, the local priest, attempts to reconcile the two before their petty squabbles escalate into vicious and bloody carnage.

Amidst humour, fighting and tragedy, the play delves into themes of family dynamics, isolation and unresolved conflicts. Martin McDonagh’s black comic portrayal of modern rural Ireland will leave you laughing and horrified in equal measure.


Enniskillen Theatre Company was established in 2019, and has competed on the festival circuit with productions such as “The Night Alive” by Conor McPherson. The group are looking forward to taking their production of ‘The Lonesome West’ to the stage in Mountmellick.
