Posted 2 months ago

A departure from Eastwood Park Theatre to Webster’s Theatre in the west end for The Cripple of Inishmaan. There were a few “fecks”, a few eggs smashed and truths brought out in the island’s tight community. We had a great cast and the Director, Alasdair Hawthorn, brought the best out of them.

Terence Rattigan’s masterpiece was produced by GTP in 2012. Donald and Paola played the couple Peter and Joan trying to maintain their hedonistic lifestyle as the world was collapsing around them. The cast had a party imbibing gin and champagne. Mark Coleman directed this stylised production in 2012.
