Mad March Hare Theatre Company presents

THE CRIPPLE OF INISHMAAN

JULY 10 - AUGUST 3

Written by Martin McDonagh
Directed by Claudia Barrie

Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934, this is a strange comic tale in the great tradition of Irish storytelling. As word arrives on Inishmaan that the Hollywood director Robert Flaherty is coming to the neighboring island of Inishmore to film Man of Aran, the one person who wants to be in the film more than anybody is young Billy Claven, if only to break away from the bitter cruelty and tedium of his daily life. 

Claudia Barrie (Dry Land, You Got Older, Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo) directs Martin McDonagh’s merciless portrayal of a world so comically cramped and mean-spirited that hope is an affront to its order.

McDonagh's play wittily exposes the multiple layers of myth that surround Ireland.” ★★★★ - The Guardian

“Layered with malice and kindness, truth and conjecture, and all the mixed motives that make human beings such endlessly intriguing subjects of speculation.” - The New York Times
