Event description
DARK LIES THE ISLAND is a dark comic melodrama about a family spinning out of control in a small Irish town.

About this Event

Martin and John Michael McDonagh better watch out. Another Irish literary figure has made the jump to the silver screen, bringing something fresh to the country’s trademark dark comedies. - Steven Galvin Film Ireland

In this rural gothic western, two brothers try to crawl out from the shadow of their domineering father while his young wife is trapped in a whirlpool of sexual jealousy. As the story unfolds, over the course of a week, a long-standing family feud comes to a head, forcing all participants to face up to the truth.

If you’re going to get involved with men in the town of Dromord, they might as well be Mannions… and Sara is involved with them up to her neck. She is married to Daddy Mannion who is more than 20 years her senior and runs the town. But her first love is his estranged son, Doggy Mannion, a criminal recluse living in the woods outside the town.

Then there is the younger brother: Martin Mannion, a small-town lothario and failed chicken farmer. Yes, Sara is involved with him too. As a result of this tangled erotic web, jealousy is rife in Dromord, and it’s flinging out spears in all directions.

The Mannion men have been set at each other; their long truce cannot hold. Serious violence is threatened. Will we get through the next few days without bloodshed?
