The Cripple Of Inishmaan
A play by Martin McDonagh
Directed by David Quaife
Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934, this is a strange comic tale in the great tradition of Irish storytelling. As word arrives on Inishmaan that the Hollywood director Robert Flaherty is coming to the neighbouring 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.
"...sublime tragicomedy about life on Ireland’s desolate Aran Islands..." – Variety
"...the scribe always tempers his killing wit with affection, and even sympathy, for his victims." – Variety
"It’s a perfect example of McDonagh’s artistry — the sheer hilarity of the comic situation and the aching poignancy of the characters for refusing to see themselves in this wrenching film of their lives." – Variety
