The Cripple of Inishmaan is a dark comedy by Martin McDonagh who links the story to the real life filming of the documentary Man of Aran.

The play is set on the small Aran Islands community of Inishmaan off the Western Coast of Ireland in 1934, where the inhabitants are excited to learn of a Hollywood film crew's arrival in neighbouring Inishmore to make a documentary about life on the islands. "Cripple" Billy Claven, eager to escape the gossip, poverty and boredom of Inishmaan, vies for a part in the film, and to everyone's surprise, the orphan and outcast gets his chance.... or so some believe.

FILM: "The Uncountable Laughter of the Sea" by Patrick Brendan O'Neill & Paris Kain

The Uncountable Laughter of the sea2

Thursday 8th June 2017 - 8pm

Further Screenings on 15th, 22nd & 29th June 2017 - 8pm

Tickets: €7 / €5 (Students)       Buy Tickets Online Here...

The film is a poetic observation on life and landscape, our lives and the layers of cultural riches that can be explored and incorporated into the present time. Our ecology and the art of letting go into a larger sense of self in relation to sharing this world with all living things. Culture as such is not enough anymore, pride in accomplishments is of little use via language, poetry and art without deep roots of humility into a cycle of life and death as the natural presents to us every season and in time we will come to experience ourselves.  Wonder is the source motivation for this film, it has no answers, it has no truths, just time and place and presence.
