The Cripple of Inishmaan at Antaeus Theatre Company (OPENING NIGHT)

January 17 - March 11, 8:00 pm
Kiki & David Gindler Performing Arts Center: Glendale

Event Overview

(THROUGH MARCH 11) Inspired by the real-life filming of the documentary Man of Aran, Olivier Award-winning playwright Martin McDonagh’s dark comedy is set on the small Aran Island community of Inishmaan (Inis Meáin) off the Western Coast of Ireland in 1934, where the inhabitants are excited to learn of a Hollywood film crew's arrival in neighboring Inishmore (Inis Mór) to make a documentary about life on the islands. “Cripple” Billy Claven, eager to escape the gossip, poverty and boredom of Inishmaan, vies for a part in the film, and to everyone's surprise, the orphan and outcast gets his chance... or so some believe.
