Summer of blood: Cap T Theatre stages another dark, bloody comedy

Editor’s note: This article was originally published May 28, 2013

Austin’s Cap T Theatre once again stages a bitingly funny yet violent and absurd comedy at Hyde Park Theatre.

Opening May 30, “The Lieutenant of Inishmore” by Irish playwright Martin McDonagh — author of “The Pillowman,” which Austin audiences couldn’t get enough of in 2007 — explores the aftermath of what happens when somone makes the horrible error of killing the beloved cat of a violent North Irish terrorist.

Cap T’s artistic director Mark Pickell says “Inishmore” features “a lot of bullets and blood and a body count that rivals Hamlet.”

Favorite actors Joey Hood, Jason Liebrecht, Robert Fisher and Lowell Bartholomee are featured.

“The Lieutenant of Inishmore” runs May 30-June 22 at Hyde Park Theatre.
