Pine To Play Terrorist In New PlayPosted by T'Bonz - 20/05/10 at 02:05 pm
Chris Pine will be starring in the Center Theatre Group’s The Lieutenant of Inishmore.
Pine will join Ian Alda, Andrew Connolly, Coby Getzug, Seán G. Griffin, Kevin Kearns, Zoe Perry and Brett Ryback in the Martin McDonagh play, which will be directed by Wilson Milam.
The Lieutenant of Inishmore is “is a blistering, graphic satire on violence set in 1993 on the rocky island of Inishmore. Padraic (Pine), a hard-boiled terrorist, has been away in Northern Ireland with his busy schedule of torture and assorted nationalist mayhem, but he is lured home to Inishmore by the news that his beloved cat, Wee Thomas, is doing poorly. When Padraic finds out Wee Thomas has been murdered, he initiates a cycle of revenge-killing that threatens everyone in his path, except perhaps the love-struck Mairead (Zoe Perry), a 16-year-old terrorist groupie with a BB gun.”
Previews of the play begin at the Mark Taper Forum on June 30. The Lieutenant of Inishmore will open officially on July 11 and will run through August 8.
