Martin McDonagh’s hit play ‘A Skull In Connemara’ arrives at the Millennium Forum next month.

After a successful tour in 2013, acclaimed writer and director McDonagh’s production will perform at the Forum for three nights from Monday, March 3 to Wednesday, March 5, as part of a major national tour.

Often described as ‘the Tarantino of the stage’, McDonagh’s talents have led to him having four plays running in London’s West End simultaneously as well as having huge hits on the big screen with ‘In Bruges’ and ‘Seven Psychopaths’.

‘A Skull In Connemara’ showcases the Academy Award winner’s flair for writing black comedy and remains a firm favourite with audiences in Ireland.

The cast are not short on talent either with performances from Garrett Keogh who has previously appeared in ‘Juno and the Paycock’ and Maria McDermottroe who is recognisable from roles in ‘The Boxer’ and ‘Veronica Guerin’.

‘A Skull In Connemara’ is the story of Mick Dowd, who for one week each autumn is hired to disinter the bones in certain sections of the local cemetery, making way for new arrivals.

As the time approaches for him to dig up the bones of his dead wife, strange rumours regarding his involvement in her sudden death seven years earlier begin to resurface.
