'Cripple' Finishes LA Run and Moves on to Berkeley

The longest stop of the five-month ‘Cripple of Inishmaan’ tour was in LA at the Kirk Douglas Theatre where it ran from April 5 – May 1, 2011. Cast and crew had a brilliant four weeks soaking up the warmer climate and their stay was made even more enjoyable by the incredibly responsive and enthusiastic LA audiences who packed out the Kirk Douglas Theatre.

Staying on the west coast, the tour moved up to Cal Performances in Berkeley on May 4, marking Druid’s third visit following previous visits with The Walworth Farce by Enda Walsh in 2009 and with The Playboy of the Western World by J.M. Synge in 2008. This is the sixth stop on the tour with just three more to go (Annenberg Center in Philadelphia, Spoleto Festival in Charleston and the International Festival of Arts & Ideas in New Haven) before the show returns home to Galway with one of the highlights of the tour sure to be the final performances on the island of Inis Meáin itself on Sunday, June 26. For more information about the Inis Meáin visit, click here.

This extensive US tour is part of Imagine Ireland, Culture Ireland’s year-long season of Irish arts in America in 2011. For more information about the tour, visit the production page.


Druid would like to acknowledge the continued support of the Arts Council in funding the company’s work and also the support of Culture Ireland in funding its international touring programme including this US tour.
