The Lonesome West will be performed at the Ruskin Group Theatre in Santa Monica beginning Friday, Jan. 27 through March 4.

Performances are scheduled at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays at the theater, 3000 Airport Road, Santa Monica.

The play was written by four-time Tony Award nominee and two-time Academy Award winning playwright Martin McDonagh.

The Lonesome West is a comedy that tells of an idealistic and flawed young man who stumbles into the lurid world of two brothers, who are locked in an endless cycle of petty grudges.The young man puts his life on the line in an effort to get the brothers to reconcile.

The Lonesome West is part of a trilogy, which includes The Skull in Connemara and The Beauty Queen of Leenane. The trilogy was staged at The Royal Court Theatre in London, along with The Cripple of Inishman, giving McDonagh the distinction of being the first playwright since William Shakespeare to have four plays running simultaneously on the professional London stage, a theatre spokesperson said.

Michael Myers, who has produced more than 65 projects since 2002, will serve as the producer/managing director.

Tickets are $25.
