Coming up at the Pavilion.
The Cripple of Inishmaan
JUNE 4 – JUNE 26 2021
BOOKINGS OPEN 5th April
BY MARTIN MCDONAGH
DIRECTED BY DAVE WENT
Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934, The Cripple of Inishmaan is a strange comic tale in the great tradition of Irish storytelling.
Word arrives on Inishmaan that Hollywood director Robert Flaherty is coming to the neighbouring island of Inishmore to film Man of Aran. One person who yearns to be in the film is young Cripple Billy, an unloved boy whose chief occupation has been gazing at cows and yearning for a girl who wants no part of him. He is determined to cross the sea and audition for the director.
As news of Billy’s audacity ripples through the rumour starved community, it becomes a merciless portrayal of a comically cramped and mean-spirited place where hope is considered an affront to its order.
The Cripple of Inishmaan is filled with a cast of extraordinary characters, unexpected plot turns, and witty, sparkling dialogue sure to leave you laughing and crying at the same time.
