More Information

Cripple Billy, an orphan living with the local shopkeepers, spinster sisters Kate and Eileen, longs for something to happen in his narrow, restricted life.

When Johnnypateenmike, brings the exciting news that the Director, ‘a Yank be the name of Robert Flaherty’ is searching for islanders to play parts in the film, Billy sees this as a chance to escape.

With a cast of eccentrics who each have their ‘endearing’ characteristics, the Cripple of Inishmaan is a darkly comic masterpiece by the multi-talented Martin McDonagh

The Cripple of Inishmaan may very well be McDonagh’s finest play …. one of those rare and enchanted productions that will live in the memory of all who see it for years to come – Chicago Sun Times

A feckin’ fine production! ….. stellar ….. smart, witty and brutal ….. Broadway World

Warning: Contains strong language and adult humour.  Suitable for age 16+

Running time: 2 hours plus interval.
