Sierra Stages is opening their 8th season with the production of the Cripple of Inishmaan. It’s a dark and wicked comedy based in 1934 when a movie director visits to cast his upcoming film, and Cripple Billy, who would like nothing more than to leave the cliffs of Ireland and his tedious life behind for the hills of Hollywood, hitches a ride to audition, not knowing how the journey will affect his life and the lives of everyone around him. Sharon Winegar is Directing the play and says the comedy would be at home in a Cohen Brothers Movie.
Winegar is directing a cast of 9 and says they are a dedicated group who most of them have daytime jobs them come to rehearsal in the evening.
But instread of getting caught up in a wood chipper, they have people getting smashed with eggs.
The Cripple of Inishmaan opens March 3rd and runs through March 19th at the Nevada Theater on Broadstreet in Nevada City. Get Tickets and Information at www.sierrastages.org.
