The Cripple of Inishmaan
April 20-21, and 24-28 at 8 p.m. | April 22 and 29 at 2 p.m.
By Martin McDonagh
Directed by Steven W. Wallace
Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934, The Cripple of Inishmaan is a touching comic tale in the great tradition of Irish storytelling. As word arrives on Inishmaan that the Hollywood director Robert Flaherty is coming to the neighboring island of Inishmore to film MAN OF ARAN, 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.
