The Lonesome West - UK Tour

Rehearsals are underway for our tour of The Lonesome West by Martin McDonagh.

It seemed an ideal posting for Father Welsh. The tiny Irish town of Leenane, where nothing ever happens...

Two murders later, and he's left fearing he made a bad decision. After the funeral of the father of the Connor brothers, he wonders if there’s more to the death than meets the eye. A series of shocking and hilarious revelations, result in a another tragic death in Leenane, but whose?

This very black comedy is part of the Leenane trilogy from acclaimed playwright Martin McDonagh.

Playing Coleman is Fraser Haines, most recently seen in our summer tour of Twelfth Night as Malvolio, he's also starred in Duets for White Cobra, and joined Masque Theatre Northampton for Twisted Tales in 2019. 

White Cobra co-founder Richard Jordan plays Valene - Richard played Sir Toby Belch this summer in Twelfth Night, and recently appeared in Stepping Out - The Musical, Glorious!, Scaramouche Jones and directed our award-winning production of The Graduate.

Ben Stanton stars as Father Welsh after his turns in Little Shop of Horrors, Twelfth Night and The Graduate for White Cobra, and was seen recently in Northampton Musical Theatre Company's Made In Dagenham.

Completing the cast is Victoria Miles as Girleen. Her credits include Stepping Out - The Musical, Twelfth Night, Hi-de-Hi and Glorious!
