Toronto Irish Players: The Lonesome West
Kathleen, Danica and I went to the Sunday matinee and had many, many good laughs watching this dark comedy about two Irish brothers with murderous tendencies. If you are Roman Catholic, and especially Irish Roman Catholic, you’ll get extra added value at no extra cost. Tickets are a bargain, anyway. Do yourself a favour and see it.
There are only 4 players in the cast for this one. All are good performers but I have to give a special nod to Ronan P. Byrne as Coleman Connor. Or does he deserve a special nod? He was so convincing, he didn’t seem to be acting at all… just being himself. What an excellent character! Wicked good fun.
A big thank you to the Toronto Irish Players for another fine show. Put yourself on their mailing list if you want to be notified of their next offering, but you still have a chance to see one of the last performances of The Lonesome West.
