The Cripple of Inishmaan

Date: 5 Jun 2019

Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934, this is a strange comic tale in the great tradition of Irish storytelling.

As word arrives on Inishmaan that the Hollywood director Robert Flaherty is coming to the neighbouring island of Inishmore to film Man of Aran, the one person who wants to be in the film more than anybody is young Billy Claven, if only to break away from the bitter cruelty and tedium of his daily life.

Claudia Barrie directs Academy Award-Winning writer Martin McDonagh’s play.

Josh Anderson, Sarah Aubrey, Zoe Carides, Laurence Coy, Jude Gibson, John Harding, Alex Bryant-Smith, Jane Watt and introducing William Rees feature.
