This is very deep dish - layered with malice and kindness, truth and conjecture, and all the mixed motives that make human beings such endlessly intriguing subjects of speculation.

Tony winner Michael Grandage's production of The Cripple of Inishmaan heads to Broadway after a sold-out run in the West End in London last Summer. Featuring the same sensational cast, including Daniel Radcliffe in the lead role, this critically acclaimed play's limited run is not to be missed!
This Broadway production has been nominated for an exciting six 2014 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Play and Best Direction of a Play for Michael Grandage.
The Cripple of Inishmaan was written by Irish playwright and director Martin McDonagh, and is described as a "comic masterpiece" by one of Ireland's most important living playwrights.
The play is set on the remote West coast of Ireland, on a small island called Inishmaan, where the locals are sent into a flurry upon hearing news that a Hollywood film is set to filmed on the nearby island of Inishmore. Radcliffe stars as young Cripple Billy who is desperate to be in the film - much to everyone's amusement - as it would be a once in a lifetime opportunity and a welcome escape from the hardship of his everyday life.
