''The play combines manic energy and physical violence in a way that is both hilarious and viscerally exciting' Daily Telegraph. Valene and Coleman, two brothers living alone in their father's house after his recent death, find it impossible to exist without the most massive and violent disputes over the most mundane and innocent of topics. Only father Welsh, the local young priest, is prepared to try to reconcile the two before their petty squabblings spiral into vicious and bloody carnage. The Lonesome West was first presented as a Druid Theatre company and Royal Court co-production in the summer of 1997.''
