My Life at the Theater: A Skull In Connemara

Nice little prologue here courtesy of I don't know who but thanks.

We saw this at the Abreacht Theater in September, 2012. I am a sucker for Irish plays and this little theater put on a good production. Martin McDonagh is the playwright.  For one week each autumn, Mick Dowd is hired to dissenter the bones in a local cemetery to make room for new arrivals. As the time comes for him to dig up the bones of his dead wife, rumors begin to circulate about her sudden death seven years before. Really nice production.

Didn't see that one, unfortunately, but saw his earlier, extremely depressing BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE.

On the other hand I really liked IN BRUGES.

The animation artist is Neil Sanders and he lives in Melbourne, Australia. Apparenlty this was done for a local production of the play and it was rear projected. The audience saw it through the set and a layer of stage fog prior to the start of the play. I found all this out by going to his user profile on YouTube.
