March 28 - April 20, 2014
The Cripple of Inishmaan
By Martin McDonagh, Directed by Steven Carpenter

Excitement ripples through the sleepy Irish community of Inishmaan that is abuzz with the news that a Hollywood filmmaker plans to shoot a movie on a neighboring island. When young “Cripple Billy” lands a screen test, the oddball citizens of Inishmaan mount a heartbreakingly hilarious campaign bursting with dark madcap humor and touching devotion. Tony Award-winning McDonagh creates a quirky, sincere, and scathingly funny fable of the slender line between cruelty and kindness.
