About the Event
‘The cripple of Inishmaan’ is set on the remote island of Inishmaan off the west coast of Ireland. Word arrives that a Hollywood film is being made on the neighbouring island of Inishmore. The one person who wants to be in the film more than anybody is young Cripple Billy, if only to break away from the bitter tedium of his daily life. ‘The cripple of Inishmaan’ examines an ordinary coming of age in extraordinary circumstances and shows once more that playwright Martin McDonagh is master of the deepest, darkest and most powerful humour.
Since its premier at the National Theatre in 1996 McDonaghs work has gone on to achieve its rightful place in the great pantheon of Irish drama.
Patrons are asked to note that the play contains strong language. Recommended for Age 14 years +
