Description: Written by award-winning Irish playwright Martin McDonagh, The Cripple of Inishmaan is a strange and whimsical comic tale set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934. As word arrives on Inishmaan that the Hollywood director Robert Flaherty is coming to the neighboring island of Inishmore to film the documentary Man of Aran, the one person who wants to be in the film more than anybody is young Cripple Billy. An orphan who lives with his aunts, Billy yearns for stardom and a chance to escape small-town life. This Hollywood film may just be his chance. Includes some profanity.
