The Black Hole Theatre Company Presents
The Cripple of Inishmaan
by Martin McDonagh
January 15 - 26
at the Black Hole Theatre
Our second mainstage production is sure to show you a side of Ireland you've never seen before.
In 1934, on the small island of Inishmaan, the community is always buzzing with gossip. As news spreads about a visit from Robert Flaherty to film Man of Aran, things on the island seem to be getting more and more strange. Some of the youth organize a boat trip to the neighboring island in hopes of getting a role in the film, but return one passenger short. 'Cripple' Billy Claven is taken to America for a screen test, leaving the people of Inishmaan to wonder what has become of him.
Irish playwright Martin McDonagh was recently launched into the mainstream eye with his cinematic cult hit In Bruges (2008). This year McDonagh hit's the big screen again with Seven Psychopaths as his work graces our stage with The Cripple of Inishmaan.
Director Mike Long takes the wheel of this darkly funny ship that will take audiences on a strange journey and get them thinking, dreaming and cracking up.
