'The Cripple of Inishmaan' Opens at Clackamas Community College

OREGON CITY - Clackamas Community College's Theatre Department will present the comic masterpiece "The Cripple of Inishmaan" by Martin McDonagh as its winter Main Stage Production.

On the remote Irish island of Inishmaan in 1934, word is out that a Hollywood film is being made on the neighboring island of Inishmore. "Cripple Billy" decides to risk everything to escape his tedious life if only he can get cast in the film and move to Hollywood. "The Cripple of Inishmaan" was a hit off-Broadway in 1998 and again on Broadway in 2014 starring Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe. Written by acclaimed screenwriter and director Martin McDonagh, "The Cripple of Inishmaan" is a side-splitting dark comedy loaded with unforgettable characters in the great tradition of Irish drama.

Directed by artistic director James Eikrem, "The Cripple of Inishmaan" features a dynamic ensemble of CCC students and community members, with scenic and lighting design by Chris Whitten and costumes by Gina Piva. The show will also feature guest artist Griff Bear, who will be accompanying with Irish fiddle.

"The Cripple of Inishmaan" runs Feb. 27-March 8, Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m., in the Niemeyer Osterman Theatre on the Oregon City campus, 19600 Molalla Ave. There will also be a 10 a.m. matinee on Friday, March 6. An opening-night reception will be held Feb. 27 at 6:30 p.m. and includes light refreshments.

Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors (62+) and free for students at the door or $5 online. Visit www.clackamas.edu/theatre or call 503-594-3153 for reservations.
