The Cripple of Inishmaan

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. Neil was brilliant as Cripple Billy, Jack as Johnnypateenmike and June and Helen as the batty aunts to Billy. Cripple Billy got the kiss off of the violent Helen, played by Alex, but just as he thought things were going his way the TB put a spanner in the works. A dark comedy but with plenty of humour.

Many thanks to Kev Thomas for the wonderful photos.
