Performs without intermission, so for some visiting the restroom before performance makes life much more comfortable:)

You can't go wrong with anything written by Martin McDonagh. The actor playing "Billy" was wonderful and the actress playing "Mammy" was hilarious.

This play is well-acted, costumed and directed. One felt as though we were really on this little island in Ireland.

There were some laughs, but it was a little hard to see people being so cruel to each other at times.

More Information



When a Hollywood filmmaker arrives at an island off the coast of Ireland to film his movie The Man of Aran, excitement ripples through the sleepy community of Inishmaan. For orphaned Billy Claven the film represents an escape from the poverty of his existence. He vies for a part in the film, and to everyone’s surprise, it is the ‘cripple’ who might get his chance.
