The Cripple of Inishmaan

Gaiety Theatre

Martin McDonagh's work is known and loved by both theatre and film audiences alike. The Cripple of Inishmaan is set on the small Aran Islands community of Inishmaan (Inis Meáin), off the Western Coast of Ireland in 1934, where the inhabitants are excited to learn of a Hollywood film crew's arrival in neighbouring Inishmore (Inis Mór) to make a documentary about life on the islands. 'Cripple' Billy Claven, eager to escape the gossip, poverty and boredom of Inishmaan, vies for a part in the film and to everyone's surprise, the orphan and outcast gets his chance… or so some believe.

This is What Happened

Civic Theatre

Did your dad ever give you lollipops for good behaviour? Would you like me to give you a lollipop now? Would you give me a lollipop now? A trippy triptych of verbal warfare, media spin, and shocking talk-show showdowns. Disarming and alarming This Is What Happened is an unflinching interrogation of objectification. Presented by the highly acclaimed Civic Theatre Company Theatre in Residence, The Corps Ensemble in collaboration with one of The Civic's Associate Artists for 2019: award-winning poet and one of Ireland's most provocative emerging playwrights, Adam Wyeth.
