No guts, no glory: Abbey Theatre of Ireland’s hyper-violent play won raves at the 2008 Edinburgh Festival Fringe—and is about as far as you can get from clover-hugging leprechauns this St. Pat’s.
March 2–6 Angels, demons, serial killers, sex, and more staggeringly vivid and hyperviolent imagery than an NC-17 surround-sound film fest: So it goes in this Irish import of interlocking monologues written with the slash-and-burn poetry of a top-tier rapper and the howling insistence of Allen Ginsberg. $10–$35. Museum of Contemporary Art, 220 E Chicago. mcachicago.org.
