The Cripple of Inishmaan
Daniel Radcliffe is “Cripple” Billy Craven in “The Cripple of Inishmaan”, playing in London’s West End in the summer of 2013.
Set on the remote island of Inishmaan off the west coast of Ireland, word arrives that a Hollywood film is being made on the neighboring island of Inishmore. The one person who wants to be in the film more than anybody is young Cripple Billy, if only to break away from the bitter tedium of his daily life. Martin McDonagh’s comic masterpiece examines an ordinary coming of age in extraordinary circumstances and confirms his position as one of the most original Irish voices to emerge in the second half of the twentieth century. Daniel Radcliffe plays the title role in the first major London revival since its premiere at the National Theatre in 1996.
“The Cripple of Inishmaan” will be performed at the Noel Coward Theatre, St Martin’s Lane, London, WC2N 4AU.
Opens: 8th June 2013
Closes: 31st August 2013
