The Cripple of Inismaan

MARTIN MACDONAGH’S THE CRIPPLE OF INISMAAN

OCTOBER 2012

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.
