Oldham Coliseum is staging black comedy A Skull in Connemara by Martin McDonagh, writer of feature films Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, Seven Psychopaths and In Bruges.

Set in rural West Ireland, the darkly comic play highlights the power of the rumour mill in small communities in attempting to unravel the mystery of gravedigger Mick’s wife’s death and the location of her missing bones.

It runs from February 22 to March 9.
