THE CRIPPLE OF INNISMAAN

Dates: 16 Dec - 16 Dec

Tickets: €20

Excitement hits the island of Inishmore and the sleepy village of Inishmaan when the local gossip, Johnnypateeenmike, announces that a Hollywood film crew is coming to film a movie on a nearby island. No one wants to go more than the orphaned cripple Billy. After a life of teasing from his neighbors like the tempestuous Slippy Helen and her brother Bartley, Cripple Billy longs to escape the island and his life with his well-meaning but crazy foster aunts. When he sets sail for the film set to chase his dreams, he finds answers to questions he never could have found in Inishmaan, but finds that those same answers lead him home.

‘McDonagh’s… comic talent appears unlimited, and he also has a way…of mixing up his humor with a touch of the poet and a profound sense of tragedy always dangerously lurking on comedy’s untidy fringe. In short, young McDonagh is a playwright to reckon with’

Open Call: Future Forecast Curator

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie? As part…
