A Behanding in Spokane

A Behanding in Spokane
By Martin McDonagh
Author of Exile’s smash hit The Lieutenant of Inishmore

A mysterious stranger is on the hunt for his missing appendage and two bungling crooks along with one devious hotel receptionist are caught up in his dangerous machinations. Carmichael (think Captain Ahab meets Dennis Hopper) brings us into his obsessive search for what has been missing from his life since childhood. Another dazzlingly macabre tale from McDonagh, Behanding slices open the roots of fanaticism and lays open the need to be “whole” again and the contempt we have for outsiders in a post-9/11 America.

Theatre Exile is proud to present the Philadelphia premiere of the play that took Broadway by storm last season. Starring Pearce Bunting, Matt Pfeiffer, Amanda Schoonover and Reuben Mitchell. 

Directed by Joe Canuso
