For one week each autumn, Mick Dowd is hired to disinter the bones in certain sections of his local cemetery, making way for new arrivals.   As the time approaches for him to dig up those of his own late wife, strange rumours regarding his involvement in her sudden death seven years earlier begin to resurface….nosey neighbours, troublesome teenagers and an ambitious Garda contribute to this macabre, funny play.

Winner of the Evening Standard & George Devine Awards for Most Promising Playwright 1996.  Martin McDonagh’s brilliant black comedy, A Skull in Connemara is one of McDonaghs funniest plays. Nominated for an Olivier award in 1997 the play is guaranteed to make you laugh, squirm and avoid graveyards!

A deliciously grim fantasy in a staging as earthy and ethereal as a Tim Burton movie.  Decadent astutely seek out work that is as crowd-pleasing as it is ambitious.” The Irish Times

‘McDonagh’s writing is pitiless but compassionate; he casts a cold, hard but understanding eye on relationships made of mistrust, hesitation, resentment and malevolence’ – The Sunday Times
