14 Apr - 28 May. Cillian Murphy plays the population of the seemingly quaint and quiet town of Inishfree, in Enda Walsh's drama on salvation and luminous madness.

Inishfree might seem like a quaint Irish town, but fierce evangelist Thomas Magill knows better. He knows jovial Dwain Flynn is a miserable drunk, that Timmy O’Leary enslaves his lovely mother and that sweet Mrs Cleary is a blasphemous flirt.

It is down to Thomas, with God on his shoulder, to save this sinful place. But the townsfolk are not listening, an angel is misbehaving and a barking dog will not be silenced. Just how far will Thomas go in his quest for salvation?

‘The electrifying Cillian Murphy… Enda Walsh, one of the most fiercely individual voices in the theatre today… a seductive and terrifying portrait of a luminous madness that dares you not to look away.’ - New York Times

Cillian Murphy – whose film work includes 28 Days Later, Breakfast on Pluto and Inception – is reunited with Enda Walsh for the first time following the phenomenally successful Disco Pigs. He returns to the London stage to play the population of an entire town in a tour-de-force solo performance of epic proportions.
