The Lonesome West was performed as part of The Leenane Trilogy alongside 'A Skull in Connemara' and 'The Beauty Queen of Leenane' (both listed separately).

Now after their father's death, and following the exhortations of the local priest, a new understanding could develop. Could, that is, if the two brothers could stop arguing over crisps, ornaments, who left the top off Valene's pen and whose turn it is to read a magazine.
