Playwright Martin McDonagh, who has made very public his annoyance with both the National and Royal Court theatres, may soon have a chance to give both the figurative "two fingers". The former refused to stage his latest, highly controversial play, The Lieutenant of Inishmore, on political grounds, and the second apparently never even acknowledged his submission, despite that fact that it was, at the time, staging a successful run of his Leenane Trilogy (The Beauty Queen of Leenane, A Skull in Connemara and Lonesome West). It was, of course, the RSC that went on to take the risk. Now it looks like the RSC may transfer its critically acclaimed production of The Lieutenant of Inishmore from The Other Place in Stratford to the West End and, of all places, the Duke of York's theatre, where the Court presented the Leenane Trilogy four years ago during its West End residency.
