The play “Lonely West” develops in a provincial town of Ireland. The main characters - the Connors brothers - live in mutual hostility with the money of their deceased father, drink and dream of the beauty Gerlin living in the neighborhood.
A local priest, Father Welsh, unsuccessfully tries to reconcile them, but, looking at what is going on in his parish, he doubts his own faith and religion, washing down whiskey with insoluble problems of life ...
The play “Lonely West” was staged based on the play of the popular Irish playwright Martin McDonagh. His works reveal human nature, its essence is bizarre, capricious and vengeful.
The story that happened in the Irish town is so typical that it could happen on a nearby street, because it is primarily about the nature of the human soul, its pettiness and weakness. Like the story of Cain and Abel, it develops into a story of failure in the universal program of the world.
But despite the fact that the author of the play “Lonely West” Martin McDonagh saturated 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 filled with deep meaning, urging you to think about simple human values, your own destiny and faith .
McDonagh writes about the same things as Shakespeare, Genet or Brecht, but "on the 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.
