From HILLARY FLYNN:
If you’ve seen Pillowman, the award winning Beauty Queen of Leenane or any other McDonagh plays you won’t want to miss Wilde Irish Production’s The Cripple of Inishmaan. If you missed Pillowman, now is your chance to see another of Martin McDonagh’s masterful black comedies. The Cripple of Inishmaan has just as many twists and turns as Pillowman, and is hilarious and just as satisfying.
In 1934, a remote island village is turned on its ear when a Hollywood film crew decides to make a documentary on a neighboring island. None more than Cripple Billy, wish to escape the claustrophobic confinement of their village existence to become film stars. But when Billy betrays his family and closest friend for passage to a better life, he seals his fate and his undoing.
