July 11- August 10, 2019

Old Fitz Theatre

By Martin McDonagh

Directed by Claudia Barrie

ABOUT

Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934, this 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 Claven, if only to break away from the bitter cruelty and tedium of his daily life.

McDonagh's…comic talent appears unlimited... he has a way…of mixing up his humour with a touch of the poet and a profound sense of tragedy always dangerously lurking on comedy's untidy fringe... a playwright to reckon with…" -NY Post.
