For one week each autumn, Mick Dowd is hired to disinter the bones in certain sections of his local cemetery, making way for new arrivals. As the time approaches for him to dig up those of own late wife, strange rumours regarding his involvement in her sudden death seven years earlier begin to resurface

Winner of the Evening Standard & George Devine Awards for Most Promising Playwright 1996. Martin McDonaghs brilliant black comedy, A Skull In Connemara, is one of McDonaghs funniest plays. Nominated for an Olivier award in 1997 the play is guaranteed to make you laugh, squirm and avoid graveyards!

McDonaghs writing is pitiless but compassionate; he casts a cold, hard but understanding eye on relationships made of mistrust, hesitation, resentment and malevolence The Sunday Times
