Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts
The Cripple of Inishmaan
The Annenberg Center, which has presented major Irish theater companies such as the Abbey Theatre and the Gate Theatre, brought Ireland's Druid Theatre of Galway to Philadelphia for a week-long engagement of its production of OBIE Award and Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh's The Cripple of Inishmaan. The play was directed by Garry Hines, Druid's founding Artistic Director, who originally discovered McDonagh. Druid Theatre, founded in 1979, is committed to presenting new work, especially that of Irish playwrights. The Cripple of Inishmaan marked the company's first performance in Philadelphia.
