really liked it

Read in May, 2011

Another one of Martin McDonagh's very violent and very dark comedies. It has everything you need to success in theatre! Dead cats, splinter groups, and more dead cats!

But seriously, this is a brilliant send-up of the culture of violence inherent in today's world. It shows us how repulsed we are by the deaths of animals, when we couldn't care less about the suffering of fellow human beings.

And it's just very funny in an anti-social way that I think appeals to the horrible person locked in all of us.
