(Photo by Geoffrey Wade Photography)

Dreams are in short supply on Inishmaan, especially for Billy Claven. So when a Hollywood filmmaker arrives on the neighboring island to make a movie, Billy goes after a part in the film, hoping to escape from the cruelty and bleakness of his life in master storyteller Martin McDonagh’s darkly comic Irish yarn. Taken from the website.

Crippled by A Fundamental Lack of Understanding of the Material
No tension or threat of violence.
Embarrassing fight choreography.
Costuming is inappropriately clean for the setting.
Characters miscast, especially Billy and Bobby.
Unmotivated, static blocking, with little business for or by the players.
Emotional range of the actors never pass sitcom levels.
Pacing lacks the music written into the language.
Set, lighting, sound were all acceptable.
