Cripple with Inishmana18+
The action takes place in 1934 on the Irish island of Inishman, although on the stage it is enclosed in the interior of a wooden rural shop, and only snapshots of harsh sea scenery and the howling of the wind with the screams of birds remind us of an exotic and distant country.
In a small village there live people - simple, ugly, but with souls pure and naive. Perhaps all of them are "adult children" with absolutely virgin consciousness, not spoiled by civilization.
Their life is contemplative and static, and no events around them occur. Their daily "talk about nothing" - a continuous trampling in place and rubbing the same facts of their general biography.
Two old aunts - Kate and Eileen - are completely occupied with their pupil, the crippled Billy, who was once taken into care after the death of his parents. And only the local gossip Johnny from time to time breaks the general boredom of his miserable news.
However, one event managed to shake up the meager world of these people: from America came a film group for the filming of the film about the island - and the cripple Billy, embraced by the dreams of a "different life", was lucky to leave with the filmmakers to the States.
His departure was a devastating blow to both aunts, since Billy and caring for him were, in fact, all that was in their world. Billy - of course, deceived by a foreign country and a big city - immensely there pines and eventually returns to the only place on earth where he was loved and where he needed someone.
Though the dreams of the local beauty Helen still will not be given to incarnate, and fellow villagers are prettier and kinder than they are, too, will never.
This play about the only homeland available to a man is set in an archaic and sentimental way, bringing back to the scene a forgotten style of slow progress and slow living of roles. Many of which are able to touch the depths of the audience hearts.
Hollywood - a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for the actor's soul?
The small island of Inishman in Ireland - that the Russian provincial village. Everyone knows absolutely everything about each other. Do not hide, do not hide. And everyone is obsessed with the dream of getting out of this hole.
Cripple Billy lives in the care of two strange aunts. He would like to unravel the mystery of his birth.
He is the most unhappy, and the happiest resident of the island. Who knew that in the United States started shooting about fishing in Ireland and they will need just such a guy? He was lucky, who had a chance to change his life.
So at initimans there is a soul-poisoning dream about Hollywood, where you want to leave everyone. Let them and chudiki, but with pure and naive souls. If they do, they will be killed, only by chance, without malice.
They lived for a long time in silence, nothing happened in their lives. The thought of the magical world of cinema literally blows up the consciousness of "adult children".
A "Hollywood star", devoured by longing in a foreign country, in a big city, one day will come to his homeland, where everyone loved him.
Will come back to die.
Maybe, in Ireland, it's not so bad, once the Yankees come to film to film.
