(November 3, 2014) The McNeese State University Theatre Bayou Players will conclude the fall theatre season with a production of Martin McDonagh's play, "The Lieutenant of Inishmore," at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 12-15, with a 2 p.m. matinee Nov. 16, in the Shearman Fine Arts Performing Arts Theatre.

On a lonely road on the island of Inishmore, someone killed an Irish Liberation Army enforcer's cat. He'll want to know who when he gets back from a stint of torture and chip-shop bombing in Northern Ireland. He loves his cat more than life itself and someone is going to pay. Described as "Monty Python meets Quentin Tarantino," McDonagh weaves a darkly comedic tale surrounding the political terrorism in rural Ireland. The production is recommended for mature audiences only.

The play will be directed by Greg Stratton and is suggested for mature audiences only.
