The Irish play, The Cripple of Inishmaan, by Martin McDonagh, takes the stage at Mesa Community College’s Theatre Outback this April 19, 20, 25 and 26 at 7:30 pm, and April 20 and 27 at 2:00 pm. Ticket prices are $10 General Admission and $7 for Students with I.D.’s and Seniors. Seats may be reserved in advance by calling the Box Office at 480-461-7172 and seats will be available at the door for all performances.
The Cripple of Inishmaan is a mostly comic tale set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934. It 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 neighboring 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 he can only break away from the bitter ritual of his daily life.
Martin McDonagh is an evocative playwright that possesses the dexterity to balance characters between extremes, and yet make them believable. In The Cripple of Inishmaan, characters reel between kindness and cruelty, affection and aggression, with McDonagh mixing his humor with a profound sense of tragedy lurking nearby. It is a worthwhile comic tale with a decidedly untidy fringe.
