The Cripple of Inishmaan

by Martin McDonagh

December 1, 2012 - December 16, 2012


nimbus presents The Cripple of Inishmaan, a little Irish yarn about a little Irish island, and little Billy Claven’s big Irish dream.

Hollywood has come to County Galway, as a famous director arrives to make a movie about life in the Aran Islands. “Cripple Billy,” as he’s known on the little island of Inishmaan, knows “there comes a time in every fella’s life when he has to take his heart in his hands and make a try for something.” But the poverty stricken, gossip loving locals may take a harder view of his gamble for fame and fortune.

Award winning playwright Martin McDonagh gives us a cast of characters whose language is at once beautiful and caustic, whose hearts can be as large as the sea, and as stony as the islands themselves. This holiday season, join nimbus in County Galway. Because on Inishmaan, “the people are more friendly."

Featuring Katie Adducci, Karen Bix, Eric Cohen, Seth Conover, Mark Groberski, Jane Hammill, Andrew Newman, Adam Scarpello, and Jean Shore.

Designed by Ursula K. Bowden, Jacob M. Davis, Andrea M Gross, Sarah Holmberg, and Liz Neerland.
