The Cripple of Inishmaan

by Martin McDonagh
November 4 — December 2, 2018 • Tornabene Theatre

Off the west coast of Ireland, on the remote Island of Inishmaan, word arrives that a Hollywood film is to be shot on a neighboring island.  The one person who wants to be in the film more than anybody is young “Cripple Billy,” an orphan in search of escape from the oppression of his daily life. Bringing his signature wry wit and biting social irony, playwright Martin McDonagh has crafted a painfully funny coming of age story that employs a series of whiplash reversals and false expectations. From the writer of the recently Oscar nominated film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, this poignant comic masterpiece is equal parts dark comedy and Irish fable.
