The play "The Lonely West" is being developed in the provincial town of Ireland. The main characters - the brothers Connors - live in mutual hostility to the money of the deceased father, drink and dream of the neighboring beauty of Gerlin.
A local priest, Welsh's father, tries unsuccessfully to reconcile them, but looking at what is happening in his ward, he doubts his own faith and religion, washing down the whiskey with insoluble problems of life ...
The play "The Lonely West" is staged according to the play of the popular Irish playwright Martin McDonagh. His works reveal human nature, its essence is bizarre, capricious and vindictive.
The story that happened in the Irish town is so typical that it could happen on the next street, because first of all it is about the nature of the human soul, its pettiness and weakness. Like the story of Cain and Abel, it grows into a story about a failure in the universal peace program.
But despite the fact that the author of the play "The Lonely West" Martin McDonagh infiltrated her with a sense of hopelessness and tragedy - at the same time it is a bright tragicomedy, sparkling with black humor, and at the same time full of deep meaning, calling to think about simple human values, one's own destiny and faith .
McDonagh writes about the same thing as Shakespeare, Jeanne or Brecht, but "on an example" of a poor Irish village. There are no kingdoms - people share a pack of chips, but the scale of the experience is equal to Shakespeare's.
Two brothers. One priest. The sea of whiskey.
Drunk heads and intoxicating souls. In alcoholic vapors and freezing air they lose their own human face. The subject of the mortgage is their soul. But behind the drunken and clouded consciousness, the silhouette of modern reality is guessed.
We choose our friends. But we do not choose a family. Do not choose and enemies. It may happen that the enemies will be in your own family. The death of the father is only the beginning. The inheritance left by him leads to the collapse of family relations. The truth is simple: the only safe enemy is a dead enemy. It does not matter that you have a brother. The wreck of the local priest suffers. The godless priest, Cain and Abel are real Shakespearean passions. But there are no more kingdoms. People kill for the cud. In them humanity remained on the bottom. And any sacrifice will be in vain.
Let everything happen against the background of Irish fir, this should not be embarrassing. Hate and anger do not have a propiska.
Tell me who your enemy is ...
