Casting nine characters, “The Cripple of Inishmaan” follows the story of young cripple Billy who lives on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934. After word arrives on Inishmaan that “Hollywood” is coming to the neighboring island of Inishmore to film Man of Aran, Billy wants to be in the film more than anybody, if only to break away from the bitter tedium of his daily life.
