Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1934, the people of Inishmaan learn that the Hollywood director Robert Flaherty is coming to the neighboring island to film a documentary. No one is more excited than Cripple Billy, an unloved boy whose chief occupation has been grazing at cows and yearning for a girl who wants no part of him. For Billy is determined to cross the sea and audition for the Yank. And as news of his audacity ripples through his rumor-starved community, The Cripple of Inishmaan becomes a merciless portrayal of a world so comically cramped and mean-spirited that hope is an affront to its order.

John Servilio, October 5, 2010 (view all comments by John Servilio)
McDonagh never ceases to surprise me with his language, his wit, and keen understanding of the human soul. He is the master of catching you off guard, of making you laugh in hysterics one moment and feel pummeled in the next. I read this play because the second in the trilogy, The Lieutenant of Inishmore, is being performed this season at Artists Rep in Portland. Whether read or seen, McDonagh's works are not to be missed!
