True to its Irish nature, “The Cripple of Inishmaan” is a dark yet surprisingly touching comedy-drama by Martin McDonagh. Set in a remote Irish village in 1930s, things get a little crazy when a Hollywood film crew shows up to make a documentary of the island.
In the midst of all the hype, “Cripple” Billy Claven is eager to make a name for himself. He hopes to escape poverty, boredom, and the cripple stereotype. And what better way than to become a star? Is this “Cripple” Billy’s big break? Or is it all a bunch of blarney?
The EPAC production of “The Cripple of Inishmaan,” winner of six Tony Award nominations, will feature a bevy of favorite EPAC character actors, as well as some new faces to the EPAC stage.
