When: Sundays, 2:30 p.m. and Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through June 25 2017
Wee Thomas might be the most important living being in Inishmore. The black cat is the only loyal companion of Mad Padraic, the most feared member of the Irish National Liberation Army. When Padraic is informed that someone killed Wee Thomas, he drops everything to track down the killer — and Padraic's methods of investigation are astonishingly brutal. He carves a bloody path through Inishmore's underworld, never stopping long enough to question why his beloved cat was killed. That just might be a mistake. Martin McDonagh's grisly The Lieutenant of Inishmore is the debut production for Theatre Macabre, a new group with a penchant for the darker side of life. The Lieutenant of Inishmore is performed at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday (June 15 to 25) at the Kranzberg Arts Center (501 North Grand Boulevard; www.kranzbergartscenter.org). Tickets are $20.
