  • Playwright

    Enda Walsh 

  • Notes

    An extensively re-written version of the play opened at the Black Box, Galway, on the 7 July, 2011. Co-produced by Landmark Productions and the Galway Arts Festival, the play featured Cillian Murphy in the role of Thomas Magill and was directed by the author.

  • Synopsis

    Thomas Magill is Misterman - the self-appointed guardian of Inishfree's moral welfare. Thomas lives inside his own head but today that safe place is beginning to doubt itself. Mammy's full of a cold and the cat is awfully depressed. An old rub down with Vick and a packet of Jammie Dodgers should sort the situation out there. Outside, the people need to be watched though. What was Eamonn Moran up to in his garage? Someone's got to keep their eyes peeled for the bad. But when all the words have stopped inside his head, will Inishfree and Thomas survive Thomas's judgement day?
