Padraic Delaney and More Join The Cripple of Inishmaan at the Noël Coward Theatre
Full Cast Revealed in the Upcoming Production of Martin McDonagh’s 1996 Production Starring Daniel Radcliffe
Last June it was announced that Daniel Radcliffe would be starring in a new production of the Martin McDonagh play The Cripple of Inishmaan and now more actors have been revealed in a full cast list. The 1996 play, which premiered at the Cottesloe National Theatre, is set to open in June 2013.
According to the latest news Michael Grandage will direct Pádraic Delaney, Ingrid Craigie, Sarah Greene, Gillian Hannah, Gary Lilburn, Conor MacNeil, Pat Shortt and June Watson.
The Cripple Of Inishmaan will see Daniel Radcliffe take on the role of Cripple Billy at the Noël Coward Theatre. Billy has been an orphan since his birth and has a plan to make it off of the Isle of Aran, defined by boredom and gossip, and realise his dream of making it in Hollywood. A Tinsel Town crew is filming a documentary on the nearby island of Inishmore and all he has to do is convince the members of the Aran community of how important it is for him to travel there.
Pádraic Delaney is an Irish actor who has appeared in various film and stage productions over the years. Among his credits is the movie The Wind That Shakes The Barley, as well as the television series The Tudors and Raw, whilst his stage roles have included Doubt: A Parable at the Tricycle Theatre in London. He is not the only new member of the cast with London credits, however, as Gary Lilburn also starred in Calendar Girls when it was staged at the Noël Coward Theatre and the rest of the cast has also amassed considerable credits.
Daniel Radcliffe is likely to be a big draw for the production when it opens in June following the run of Peter and Alice with Judi Dench. Best known for the Harry Potter series of movies, Radcliffe was previously seen in Equus at the Gielgud Theatre.
The Cripple Of Inishmaan is at the Noel Coward Theatre from Tuesday 18th June 2013 (previews from Saturday 8th June 2013) to Saturday 31st August 2013.
