A Skull in Connemara kicks off live theatre season

In a flyspeck of a town in Ireland’s fabled West, four lonely, loveable misfits dig for the truth—and get so much more.

In a flyspeck of a town in Ireland’s fabled West, four lonely, loveable misfits dig for the truth—and get so much more.

Such is the scenario for the Studio Theatre’s first play of the new season A Skull in Connemara by Martin McDonagh, opening Wednesday evening at the Studio Theatre in Glendale elementary school.

This sidesplitting yarn conjures a macabre mystery packed with merriment, mayhem, and might-be murder that is as full of twists as a shillelagh and as haunting as a whistle in a graveyard.

Directed by Curt Sprickerhoff, the cast includes Michael Rawluk as Mick Dowd, Sandi Alaric as Maryjohnny Rafferty, Cody Slinn as Mairtin Hanlon, and Alex Pinette as Thomas Hanlon.

The play runs Nov. 7 to 10 and Nov. 14 to 17 starting at 8 p.m. each evening.

Tickets are available at About Face Photography and the Open Book.
