- Daniel Radcliffe and Ingrid Craigie
The Cripple of Inishmaan is a play by Martin McDonagh, who I think is a really terrific playwright, I’ve seen it three times. This stars Daniel Radcliffe, and this is the first time I’ve ever seen it as a comedy, and it is helped enormously by that. Daniel Radcliffe is wonderful in this, he plays the cripple of Inishmaan, being raised by two aunties, who are droll and not very loving. He has a crush on the village beauty, who is a stinker. There is a company that comes to town to film from Hollywood, and he decides this is his way out. This is funny, but not cheery, I don’t want to give away too much, you will enjoy discovering the story for yourself. Harry Potter is a real actor, 4.5 stars.
