LAVC presents THE CRIPPLE OF INISHMAAN by Martin McDonagh

Share this event:

Los Angeles Valley College presents Martin McDonagh's THE CRIPPLE OF INISHMAAN in the Horseshoe Theater on the LAVC campus.

The remote island of Inishmaan, off the west coast of Ireland, circa 1934.  The isolated islanders are excited to learn of the arrival of a Hollywood film crew on neighbouring Inishmore, there to make a documentary about life on the Aran Islands.

17-year-old Billy Claven, desperate to escape the monotony of Inishmaan, is eager to be a part of the film. An orphan and outcast, "Cripple Billy" has been raised by his harsh but well-meaning aunties, Kate and Eileen, ever since his parents drowned in the rough seas off Inishmaan. It seems that nobody ever really wanted Billy, but perhaps Hollywood will?

Maybe that will stop local newsman Johnny pateenmike's stupid gossiping about him? Or better yet, attract the attention of the beautiful yet terrifying Helen? But first he's got to find a way to cross the sea to Inishmore. Once there, will he ever come back?

The production is directed by LAVC professor Cathy Susan Pyles, the scenery and lights are designed by LAVC chairperson Jennifer Read, and the costumes by LAVC adjunct professor Mary Reilly.

CRIPPLE OF INISHMAAN opens Thursday, October 22 at 8pm and continues Friday, Saturday and Sunday, October 23-25.  All performances are in the LA Valley College Horseshoe Theater. Evening performances are at 8pm and Saturday and Sunday matinees begin at 2pm. Tickets are $15.00 if purchased in advance here on brownpapertickets.com, $20.00 if purchased at the door.
