The New York Times reports that McDonagh — whose Broadway outings include The Lieutenant of Inishmore, The Pillowman, The Lonesome West and The Beauty Queen of Leenane — has written a play set in small-town America.
Entitled A Behanding in Spokane, the new work features a four-person cast, including a missing-limbed man in his forties. About the play McDonagh told the Times, "It's brand new. . . . It's still under wraps but it should be for the next season." The playwright declined to say where the play would make its debut.
