The Cripple of Inishmaan | Michael Grandage Company at the Noel Coward Theatre starring Daniel Radcliffe
Daniel Radcliffe stars in Martin McDonagh’s comic masterpiece set in rural Ireland, directed by Michael Grandage as part of his new season at the Noel Coward Theatre.
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.
