Winner 1996 Evening Standard Award for Most Promising Playwright; Winner 1996 George Devine Award for Most Promising Playwright For one week each autumn, Mick Dowd is hired to disinter the bones in certain sections of his local cemetery, to make way for new arrivals. As the time approaches for him to dig up those of his own late wife, strange rumours regarding his involvement in her sudden death seven years ago gradually begin to resurface.
Martin McDonagh was born in London in 1970. Most of his early writing consisted of radio plays and screenplays, until he wrote a series of theatre plays in 1994/1995 that would bring success. In 1999 The Lonesome West was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Play. Other plays that were published and produced are A Skull in Connemara (1997), The Cripple of Inishmaan (1996), The Lieutenant of Inishmore (2001, nominated for a Tony Award for Best Play in 2006) and The Pillowman (2003). The Pillowman won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play in 2004, and was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Play in 2005. Martin McDonagh is the first dramatist since Shakespeare to have four works professionally produced on the London stage in one single season.
