Open Auditions for The Cripple of Inishmaan

22 March 2018 - 7:30pm

Martin McDonagh's The Cripple of Innishmaan is wickedly funny, poignant play is set in 1934 on a small island off the West coast of Ireland.  The arrival of a Hollywood film crew on a neighbouring island sets the youngsters' hearts racing with the prospect of escape and a new life in the USA.

The fabulous character parts are raw, hilarious, challenging, irreverent and realistic, requiring a creative approach and, of course, an Irish accent.  This black, tragi-comedy is about getting the audience to laugh and cry at the same time.  It is a play to challenge concepts of political correctness; to question who, in fact, are the people who don’t fit in, and a hope of replacing pain and loneliness with laughter and love.
