Corofin Dramatic Society present ‘The Cripple of Inishmaan’ by Martin McDonagh


Set on Inishmaan in 1934


‘The Cripple Of Inishmaan’ 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 neighbouring island of Inishmore to film ‘Man of Aran’, 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.
