The Theatre School @ North Coast Rep presents the bittersweet and daring dark Irish comedy, The Cripple of Inishmaan as its next student production! 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 Cripple Billy, if only to break away from the bitter tedium of his daily life.

Director Benjamin Cole is proud to share the talents of his student cast. "We're having so much fun in rehearsals exploring the Western Irish dialect," Cole muses. "The show challenges our actors for greater vocal clarity, and even showcases some exciting moments of stage combat," he offers. Assistant Director Steve Smith adds, "It's great to see the cast sink their teeth into the playful Irish storytelling that weaves both painful emotion, hope, and joy." The show runs a bustling 120 minutes with one intermission and hopes to pull audiences to the edge of their seats with each unexpected twist. Additional production staff includes Costumer, Roxas Shepherd; Sound Designer, Caleb Foley; Stage Manager, Paul Smith; and Lighting Designer, Liam Sullivan. Catalina Zelles will be joining as a student ASL interpreter for the closing performance May 19th.
