The Lieutenant of Inishmore at the Noel Coward Theatre – 23rd June 2018 to 8th September 2018

Poldark actor Aidan Turner will make his West End debut next year in The Lieutenant of Inishmore, a violently dark comedy by the Oscar-winning Martin McDonagh.

MGC Artistic Director Michael Grandage directs the West End revival of Martin McDonagh’s critically acclaimed, brilliant satire on terrorism, The Lieutenant of Inishmore. Aidan Turner, star of stage and screen, best known for his role in Poldark, will play Mad Padraic, a terrorist who is deemed too violent to be a member of the IRA, in this very hilarious, and somewhat acute observation of violence in contemporary culture.

Who knocked Mad Padraic’s cat over on a lonely road on the island of Inishmore and was it an accident? He’ll want to know when he gets back from a stint of torture and chip-shop bombing in Northern Ireland: he loves that cat more than life itself.

This production follows Michael Grandage’s award-winning production of McDonagh’s The Cripple of Inishmaan in 2013.

Mood Music at the Old Vic Theatre – 21 April 2018 to 16 June 2018

Music is medication. The elixir of life. It’s for injecting into the blood stream to take away the pain…to promote euphoria…to adrenalise us and give us courage and fortitude.’

In a top London recording studio, a young songwriter, her producer, their lawyers and psychotherapists go to battle over who owns a hit song.

‘I’m not saying he’s a sociopath. I’m just saying you find a lot of damaged people are drawn to the music industry. Lack of empathy, raging narcissism, grandiose egocentricity is expected of them.’

A sly, wry exploration of the dark side of the music industry by the writer of Sunny Afternoon and Blue/Orange, the world premiere of Mood Music by Joe Penhall, is directed by Roger Michell.
