A Skull in Connemara

by Martin McDonagh

Poster of A Skull in Connemara

Connemara’s cemetery is getting crowded, and it’s time for Mick Dowd to start his yearly employment digging up the old graves to make room for new bodies. But this year there’s a catch. Mick will be digging up the corner of the cemetery where his wife was buried. Hilarity, drama, and violence ensue as the characters unravel the web of questions. Did Mick murder his wife? How exactly does he dispose of the bodies? And who has been fooling around in the cemetery before Mick arrived?A senior project for Peter Kaufman.Auditions to be held soon!
