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 that the Hollywood director Robert Flaherty is coming to the neighbouring island of Inishmore to film Man of Aran, 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.Performers Nora Connolly (Mammy), Timothy Deenihan (Babbybobby), Tom Farrelly (Billy), Russell Dixon (Johnnypateenmike), Geraldine Fitzgerald (Eileen), Paddy Glynn (Kate), Veronica Leer (Helen), Paul Lloyd (Doctor), Patrick Moy (Bartley).
