The cast has been announced for Martin McDonagh’s The Lieutenant of Inishmore at the Liverpool Everyman Theatre.

The Everyman Theatre continues its 60th birthday celebrations with a run of the critically acclaimed play, The Lieutenant of Inishmore, from Saturday 21 September to Saturday 12 October.

Directed by Chris Sonnex, the production features an all-Irish and Northern Irish cast, including Katherine Devlin, Jason Kelly, Taylor McClaine, Cameron McKendrick, Julian Moore-Cook, Michael Tient, and Alan Turkington.

Mixing cats, killers and casual violence, The Lieutenant of Inishmore  is the shocking, savage and sadistically funny winner of the Olivier Award for Best Comedy from Martin McDonagh; the acclaimed writer of In BrugesThe Pillowman , and The Banshees of Inisherin

Set on the remote Aran Islands, the story follows Padraic, a ruthless Irish National Liberation Army enforcer, who returns home to find that his beloved cat, Wee Thomas, has been killed. What ensues is a series of darkly hilarious and brutal events that expose the absurdity of extremist violence.

Taking the role of Padraic is Julian Moore-Cook, who has numerous tv roles that include The PeripheralDerry Girls  and Peaky Blinders, and recent theatre credits including Underdog: The Other Other Brontë  (National Theatre and Northern Stage) and Cowbois (RSC and Royal Court).

The role of Donny is played by Alan Turkington, Michael Tient  is Brendan, and Taylor McClaine  plays Davey. Katherine Devlin, recently seen on BBC TV in Blue Lights takes the role of Mairead. 

The Everyman has always championed emerging talent and the cast for The Lieutenant of Inishmore  is no exception with two graduates from Liverpool John Moores University: Cameron Mckendrick  is Christy and Jason Kelly, makes his professional stage debut as Joey. 

Mark Da Vanzo, the theatres’ Chief Executive, said: 

“As part of the Everyman’s 60th birthday celebrations, this production underscores our commitment to daring, thought-provoking and relevant work. Blending dark comedy and biting satire, Martin McDonagh’s brilliant play is sure to be a hugely entertaining and surprising night at the theatre.”
