The Cripple Of Inishmaan
By Martin McDonagh, The Ardhowen, Enniskillen 8 pm £14 concession £12
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 play 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 McDonagh’s work has gone on to achieve its rightful place in the great pantheon of Irish drama.
This play contains some strong language. Suitable for 14 years and upwards. www.ardhowentheatre.comhttp://www.ardhowentheatre.com
