An Oldham Coliseum Theatre production
A Skull In Connemara

BAFTA and Academy Award-winning Martin McDonagh’s black comedy A Skull In Connemara draws you into the unfolding mysteries of an Irish village.

Mick is a gravedigger whose wife died under mysterious circumstances some seven years ago. Rumour has it, it was murder. When the time comes to exhume bodies from the Connemara graveyard he finds her bones are missing.

Martin McDonagh is best known for feature films: In Bruges, Seven Psychopaths and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (winner of three BAFTA Awards and two Golden Globe Awards).

A Skull in Connemara is the second of his Leenane Trilogy of plays following on from The Beauty Queen of Leenane, which had a hit run here at the Coliseum in 2009 with London Classic Theatre.
