There isn't much to do on the remote island of Inishmaan. But when a Hollywood film crew arrives on a neighbouring island with promises of fame and fortune, the good folk of Inishmaan get stars in their eyes. All poor Cripple Billy sees is a chance to escape the boredom of his everyday life as the "village cripple". The people are as rough and desolate as the landscape but things are not all they seem in Inishmaan.
TheatreiNQ brings this hysterical black comedy to Townsville for the very first time featuring Brendan O'Connor, Meg Bowden, Michael Doris, Arminelle Fleming, Kellie Esling, Michael Gleeson, Terri Brabon, Bernie Lanigan and James Thomasson as Cripple Billy.
