News   PHOTO CALL: The Lieutenant of Inishmore Marches Into New York with Atlantic Opening
 
Playwright Martin McDonagh, who scored a major hit with last season's fanciful The Pillowman, brings a new kind of terror to the New York stage with the opening of the Atlantic Theater Company's production of his play The Lieutenant of Inishmore.

Not one to shy away from putting gore and savagery in front of an audience, McDonagh uses Inishmore to satirize the complicated and highly violent world of domestic terrorist groups such as the IRA in Ireland.
