Carlow Little Theatre Society are delighted to be returning to the stage of the George Bernard Shaw theatre this coming May, with their production of Martin McDonagh's darkly comic play 'The Cripple of Inishmaan'.
Set on the remote island of Inishmaan off the west coast of Ireland in 1934, word arrives that a Hollywood film is being made on the neighbouring island of Inishmore. The one person who wants to be in the film more than anybody is young Cripple Billy, if only to break away from the bitter tedium of his daily life. McDonagh's much lauded tale examines an ordinary coming of age in extraordinary circumstances and confirms his position as one of the most original Irish voices to emerge in the second half of the twentieth century.
'The Cripple of Inishmaan' will be Directed by Mark Cradock and is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.
