A one-man terrorist cell wages war …

All because somebody killed his cat. Oscar-nominated writer Martin McDonagh is at his best mixing his black Irish humor with a Tarantino-esque flair in this stage drama of revenge, cats, and blind justice. Mad Padraic, a terrorist too fanatic for the IRA, is enraged and grief-stricken when Wee Thomas, his beloved kitty, has “taken poorly” back home — i.e. been found flattened on a local roadside.  So Padraic returns to the wind-swept Aran Islands for revenge.
