About this show

The Cripple of Inishman, an ingeniously funny, suspenseful play by Martin McDonagh, centers on Billy, a disabled boy living in the remote and quaint region of Inishmaan during the 1930s. Billy's parents died at sea when he was a baby, and he has been raised by two eccentric and good-natured foster-aunts. Cripple Billy seizes a chance to escape his confined life on Inishmaan when an American film crew arrives to make a documentary. Mischief, mayhem, and the love of a good rumor run amuck on Ireland's shores. Donald Hicken directs.
