A dark comedy from the writer and director of this year’s Academy Award®-nominated Best Picture, "The Banshees of Inisherin." Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934, "The Cripple of Inishmaan" is a strange comic tale in the great tradition of Irish storytelling. As word arrives on Inishmaan that the Hollywood director Robert Flaherty is coming to the neighboring island of Inishmore to film Man of Aran, the one person who wants to be in the film more than anybody is young Billy, if only to break away from the bitter tedium of his daily life. Directed by senior theatre major Ethan Brandt.
