The play tells the story of Billy, an orphaned crippled lad living on the island of Inishmaan with his aunts, who dreams of escaping his lowly life when a Hollywood film crew arrives on a nearby island. The plot itself appears simple but contains several nice twists and turns that resolve themselves in a very satisfying manner.
More importantly, the playwright Martin McDonagh has an incredible facility for language and for capturing the life and behaviour of rural Irish folk. The play is rich with the inate humour of their speech patterns and their personal perspective on the world. A whole cast of memorable supporting characters each makes their mark just from reading the play text.
It's a play that deserves to be seen, but if it's not being performed anywhere near you, then do the next best thing and buy this script. You won't be disappointed.
