IN 1934, on Inis Meáin in the Aran Islands, there is great excitement when news arrives that a Hollywood film is being made on the neighbouring island of Inis Mór.
The one person who wants to be in the film more than anybody is young Cripple Billy, who years for a shot at stardom, and who desperately wants to break away from the bitter tedium of his daily life.
This is Martin McDonagh's brilliant The Cripple of Inishmaan, which will be staged by Kiltimagh's Clann Machua Drama Group on Saturday February 24 at 8pm in the Kinvara Community Centre. The performance is to raise funds for Kinvara Town Twinning. Tickets are €10 and will be available on the door, or Be Yourself boutique, and Market Square Surgery in Kinvara.
