My dear friend Daria Bukvić is graduating this year from Toneelacademie Maastricht as theatre director.
Daria is fascinated by the man who chooses cruelty as a means to mask his vulnerability and she finds this in the play 'The Lonesome West' by the Irish playwright Martin McDonagh. The play made her think back to her childhood. The time that she grew up in a small Catholic village and invented stories to escape the suffocation of the small community.

This dark satire takes place in the godforsaken village Leenane. Where the pews are empty, unemployment and regular killings take place within homes.We follow two brothers who are bitter towards each other to life and are complicit in the murder of their father. A young priest who comes from another village, sees his parish before his eyes languish. He is the only one that makes attempt to restore the community and to flourish brotherly love between the boys. And then there's a young girl who pursues a forbidden love.
The writer Martin McDonagh has won many awards for his theater and film texts, including a BAFTA Award for the script of the film 'In Bruges'. McDonagh has been called the "Tarantino" from the theater ", because of the same combination of violence and humor.
