I have to say that I read this book with great enthusiasm, desperately looking for the point of it all. Martin McDonagh has of late, started writing plays which do not centre around olde-Ireland. This can be quite a shock when one sees In Bruges and The Pillowman. Having seen this production lately by a Galway group, I can say that the play is far from overated. Far from funny and a little too close to the bone in this day and age - I refer to child abuse. Definately the poorest play I have seen staged in many many years - not because of a poor group but because of a nonsensical script.
