McDonagh play “The Cripple of Inishmaan” set for Greensboro production in March
Martin McDonagh’s “The Cripple of Inishmaan” will be presented in the Stephen Hyers Theatre, Greensboro Cultural Center, for eight shows at the end of March, 2019.
Directed by Michael Kamtman (Winston-Salem, Wake Forest University faculty) and produced by Off the Beaten Path Productions (Greensboro) and Log-Inn Productions (Kernersville), the play studies the eccentric residents of Inishmaan, a small island just off the western coast of Ireland. A Hollywood documentary filmmaker is visiting the next island north in 1934, and the residents’ lives are inevitably affected by the excitement about “the filming.”
“The Cripple of Inishmaan” will be offered at 7:30 p.m., Thursday through Saturday, March 21-23 and March 28-30, and at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 24 and March 31.
