Poldark actor Aidan Turner will make his West End debut next year in The Lieutenant of Inishmore, a violently dark comedy by the Oscar-winning Martin McDonagh.
MGC Artistic Director Michael Grandage directs the West End revival of Martin McDonagh's critically acclaimed, brilliant satire on terrorism, The Lieutenant of Inishmore. Aidan Turner, star of stage and screen, best known for his role in Poldark, will play Mad Padraic, a terrorist who is deemed too violent to be a member of the IRA, in this very hilarious, and somewhat acute observation of violence in contemporary culture.
Who knocked Mad Padraic's cat over on a lonely road on the island of Inishmore and was it an accident? He'll want to know when he gets back from a stint of torture and chip-shop bombing in Northern Ireland: he loves that cat more than life itself.
This production follows Michael Grandage's award-winning production of McDonagh's The Cripple of Inishmaan in 2013.
