SPOLETO FESTIVAL USA | May 27 to June 12, 2011 | Charleston, SC spoletousa.org | 843.579.3100 This hilarious dark comedy and multi-award-winning production from Ireland's illustrious Druid Theatre Company is filled with a host of charming characters and unexpected plot twists. The Cripple of Inishmaan marks Druid's Spoleto debut with one of the company's most lauded productions. It's 1934 on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland and word arrives that a Hollywood director is shooting a film on location. As ripples of excitement spread through the community, no one is more determined to audition than "Cripple" Billy who along the way tries to make sense of who he is. Flawlessly staged and brilliantly acted, by turns eccentric and dazzlingly funny, Martin McDonagh's masterpiece is directed by Druid's Tony Award--winning artistic director Garry Hynes with a stellar cast that brings "every line to startlingly vivid life." (Wall Street Journal)

Inspired by the infamous 1927 murder trial of Ruth Snyder, Machinal is a gripping drama by American journalist and playwright Sophie Treadwell. Golden Globe nominee Rebecca Hall (The Town, Vicky Cristina Barcelona) stars in this sensational new production helmed by acclaimed British director Lyndsey Turner. It's America's Golden Age, a time of happiness, freedom and prosperity----or is it? For one young woman in the industrial, male-dominated world of the 1920s, life is nothing like she hoped it would be. Restless and unfulfilled in a passionless marriage and an unwanted motherhood, she finds her only joy in the form of an illicit love affair. But when reality sets in and she must return to her routine existence, she'll go to any lengths to regain her freedom. A groundbreaking work in the landscape of American theatre, Machinal is a riveting look at the danger that can come from a life unlived. PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE Tuesday--Saturday at 8:00pm; Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2:00pm.

Performed by the Druid Theatre Company of Galway, this production of PLAYBOY OF THE WESTERN WORLD was heralded as possibly the most definitive version of Synge's masterpiece. The play is set in a remote inn on the west coast of Ireland at the turn of the 20th century. Christy Mahon is a fugitive who claims to have killed his father. Somehow this act turns him into a local hero and a romantic idol. Ironically when it is discovered that his father is alive and he is no murderer, Christy is totally discredited and the local community seek their revenge. Playboy is a black comedy of epic proportions.

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.

A short taster from the 2014 Decadent Theatre production of a Skull in Connemara. Pat Egan and Decadent Theatre present A Skull in Connemara by Martin McDonagh Author of In Bruges, Seven Psychopaths & the celebrated Leenane Trilogy. The Cast Includes Garrett Keogh, Maria McDermottroe, Patrick Ryan and Jarlath Tivnan For one week each autumn, Mick Dowd is hired to disinter the bones in certain sections of his local cemetery, making way for new arrivals. As the time approaches for him to dig up those of his own late wife, strange rumours regarding his involvement in her sudden death seven years earlier begin to resurface....nosey neighbours, troublesome teenagers and an ambitious Garda contribute to this macabre, funny play. Winner of the Evening Standard & George Devine Awards for Most Promising Playwright 1996. Martin McDonagh's brilliant black comedy, A Skull in Connemara is one of McDonaghs funniest plays. Nominated for an Olivier award in 1997 the play is guaranteed to make you laugh, squirm and avoid graveyards! "A deliciously grim fantasy in a staging as earthy and ethereal as a Tim Burton movie. Decadent astutely seek out work that is as crowd-pleasing as it is ambitious." The Irish Times 'McDonagh's writing is pitiless but compassionate; he casts a cold, hard but understanding eye on relationships made of mistrust, hesitation, resentment and malevolence' -- The Sunday Times "Flynn's assured, stylish production is less a revival than an illuminated restoration....Nothing encapsulates Decadent's imaginative production more than the transition -- courageous, brilliantly executed transition -- of MacCarthaigh's inspired set." Irish Theatre Magazine GARRETT KEOGH is cast as Mick Dowd. Garrett Trained at the Abbey Theatre School of Acting. As a member of the Abbey Company he performed in Juno and the Paycock, The Plough and the Stars, and premieres of I Do not Like Thee Dr Fell, and A Life. With Jim Sheridan, Neil Jordan, Paula Meehan and others, he founded the Children's T Company, making and bringing theatre to schools, playgrounds, Dollymount Strand and the Dublin mountains. He worked on Broadway, the West End, Hong Kong, Wellington New Zealand, Tulsa Oklahoma, Kenmare, Ballythomas, Hartstown and Skibbereen. TV and film includes Veronica Guerin, A Love Divided, Angela's Ashes, Jack Taylor, Honeymoon For One, and Corp Agus Anam. As a writer he was awarded a Stewart Parker/BBC Radio Drama Award, a P. J. O'Connor Radio Drama Award, and an Oireachtas Script Theilifíse Award. One of the best known actors is MARIA McDERMOTTROE, who comes from a family long-associated with drama in the Northwest. Maria is recognisable from roles in a range of TV and film productions, as well as her appearances on stage. A glimpse of her work to date includes The Boxer, The Dead, Veronica Guerin, Killinaskully, and Glenroe. The cast also includes PATRICK RYAN who is well known for his roles in RTE's 'Trivia', 'Pure Mule' and 'Whistleblower'. And into that mix comes the energised raw talent of JARLATH TIVNAN. This untrained actor was spotted by the director in Dramsoc productions at NUIG. He was inspired to take to the stage by a friend and great actor (Brendan Gleeson, who Jarlath knew as his Granny taught Brendan Gleeson the fiddle). Martin McDonagh's A Skull in Connemara is the sister in the Leenane Trilogy, the play's older and younger siblings are The Beauty Queen of Leenane and The Lonesome West.

ZIEGLER ( - ) The Awakening of Spring is the German dramatist Frank Wedekind's first major play and a seminal work in the modern history of theatre. It is the source material for the contemporary rock musical Spring Awakening. The play criticises the sexually-oppressive culture of fin de siècle Germany and offers a vivid dramatisation of the erotic fantasies that it breeds. Due to the nature of its content, the play has often been banned.

On St Georges Day, the morning of the local county fair, Johnny Byron is a wanted man. The council officials want to serve him an eviction notice, his son wants his dad to take him to the fair, and a motley crew of mates want his ample supply of drugs and alcohol. A comic, contemporary vision of rural life in our green and pleasant land, Jez Butterworth's epic new play is wildly original. In part a lament about the erosion of country life and in part a rebuff to the antiseptic modern world, it features a landmark central performance from Mark Rylance as hellraiser Johnny Byron, 'a performance so charismatic, so mercurial, so complete and compelling that it doesnt look like acting' (Evening Standard), and a superb ensemble cast including Mackenzie Crook who 'excels' as Johnnys sidekick Ginger.

Show Run Dates are March 17-April 3, 2011, Thursdays-Sundays at 7:30pm with no matinees. The Pillowman is a 2003 play... by Irish playwright Martin McDonagh. It received its first public reading in an early version at the Finborough Theatre, London, in 1995. A black comedy, it tells the tale of Katurian, a fiction writer living in a police state who is interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories, and their similarities to a number of bizarre child murders occurring in his town. The play received the 2004 Olivier Award for Best New Play, the 2004-5 New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best New Foreign Play, and two Tony Awards for production. It was nominated for the 2004 Evening Standard Award for Best New Play. Summary Katurian (Buddy Jones), a writer of grisly short stories often showing violence against children, has been arrested by two detectives, Ariel (Andy Woolszyn) and Tupolski (Justin Hand), because some of his stories resemble recent child murders. When he hears that his brother Michal (Jared Pickett) has confessed to the murders and implicated Katurian, he resigns himself to his execution but attempts to save his stories from destruction. The play includes both narrations and reenactments of several of Katurian's stories, most notably the autobiographical "The Writer and the Writer's Brother," which tells how Katurian developed his disturbed imagination by hearing the sounds of Michal being tortured by their parents. The cast additionally includes Sherry Sunday Booth, Steven Luster, Zach Parker, Tia Green, and Brenna Todd
