In this chapter of McDonagh’s Leenane plays, all set in Ireland’s remote west country, Mick Dowd is again setting about the task he’s hired for every fall — digging up the old bones in the local cemetery to make room for new arrivals. This year, however, he comes upon the remains of his late wife, and the rumors resurface about her mysterious death in a drunk driving accident seven years before.
This U.S. Premiere production of A Skull in Connemara was originally presented by Seattle’s ACT in July of 2000.
