Dan talks to WSJ about The Cripple of Inishmaan
Dan has spoken to The Wall Street Journal about working on the West End production of The Cripple of Inishmaan, which opens in previews in five weeks.
His character, Billy Claven, has a disability affecting the limbs on one side of his body, and whilst his condition is never named, Dan, in the course of his preparation, has identified it as hemiplegia, a form of cerebral palsy. As Dan has to use a Galaway accent for the play, he has been working with vocal coach Janis Price, who has a mild form of cerebral palsy, giving Dan a basis for his own portrayal of the effects of the condition.
