In Behanding, Carmichael's 37-year search for his missing left hand brings him to a small-town hotel where he encounters a bizarre hotel clerk and a small-time con-artist couple who claim to have the hand.
Austin critics called HPT's 2008 production of McDonagh's The Lonesome West "witty, engaging, intense, and wickedly funny" and "utterly hilarious." HPT's 2007 production of McDonagh's The Pillowman sold out every performance during an unprecedented three extensions; Austin critics called it "utterly compelling," "an excellent production of an immensely challenging and strikingly brilliant play," and "one fascinating, entertaining night of theatre that we can't recommend highly enough." Those productions were also directed by Ken Webster.
McDonagh won an Academy Award for Best Short Film for Six Shooter and an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay for In Bruges.
