It's 1934 and news on the island of Inishmaan is thin on the ground. Then word arrives that they're making a Hollywood film on neighbouring Inishmore, and for once Cripple Billy is paying attention. The Cripple of Inishmaan is a comic masterpiece which sees outrageous island eccentrics trade stories to within an inch of their lives while a young man tries to make sense of who he is. This production revives the unique relationship between Tony Award-winning director Garry Hynes, writer Martin McDonagh and the acclaimed Druid ensemble. Following Druid's resounding success producing McDonagh's richly dark black comedies (The Beauty Queen of Leenane, The Lonesome West and A Skull in Connemara) they now return with the Irish premiere production of another McDonagh classic. Direct from Galway this production plays in the  Cork Opera House  from  September 30th to October 4th before playing the Olympia Theatre as part as the Ulster Bank Dublin Theatre Festival and moving on to and venues in Longford, Portlaoise, Ennis, Tralee and Letterkenny.
