About this show

The Druid and Atlantic Theater Company production of The Cripple of Inishmaan by Martin McDonagh, comes to the Kirk Douglas as part of its U.S. tour. Set in 1934 on a remote island off the coast of Ireland, the play tells of the day when the local gossip, Johnnypateenmike, finally stumbles upon news that is exciting. A Hollywood director is coming to the neighboring island of Inishmore to film The Man of Aran and there's a chance some of the locals will be hired. This chance at stardom interests Helen, the village beauty, her brother Bartley and even Babbybobby, but there is no one more eager to audition than Cripple Billy, if only to break away from his overprotective aunts and the bitter tedium of his daily life.
