The Cripple of Inishmaan by Martin McDonagh
Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934, The Cripple of Inishmaan is a dark comedy. Inspired by a real event – the filming of The Man of Aran on Inishmore in 1934 – the story follows the impact of the news of the filming on young Cripple Billy and the other inhabitants of Inishmaan.
Could this be their escape from life on Inishmaan where the tedium is broken only by the gossip and stories put about by Johnnypateenmike?
Cruel, sad, sometimes violent, yet achingly funny, the story reveals the characters in a way that makes you realise that people are not always as they seem.
The Cripple of Inishmaan, directed by Noreen Doyle, will run from 7–11 February 2017 at the Warehouse Studio Theatre
