The popular play is the blackest of black comedy by the Oscar winner is the third play in his seminal work The Leenane Trilogy.

McDonagh’s much-loved characters, Colman and Valene, two brothers living alone in their father’s house after his recent death, find it impossible to exist without regular violent disputes over mundane matters.
