Facing ‘West’

“The Lonesome West,” a drama by Tony-nominated playwright Martin McDonagh, ends its run with four shows this weekend on The Rotary Stage at Andrews Hall.

Produced by the Narrow Way Stage Company, the show is first of the 2013 Sonoma Theatre Alliance season.

The powerful piece, directed by Chris Ginesi, examines the lives of two Irish brothers, played by real-life siblings Nick and Jon Christenson. After their father’s death, the lads find any semblance of a peaceful life impossible, and old demons are dredged up to be reconciled through a feud that reaches near biblical proportions.

Read The Sun interview with director Chris Ginesi.

A pretty young woman (Nora Summers) and a priest with issues of his own (Clint Campbell) are all that stand between the two brothers as they careen towards their inevitable fate. Though a deep and often raw character study, the play has its moments of ironic humor.

Show times are 8 p.m., Thurs.-Sat., June 27-29, and 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 30. The production runs through June 30, with a similar schedule. Tickets are $20-$28 at The venue is located at 276 E. Napa St.
