ITG: After Friel (11-15 Oct 2016)

Friel pub Just White Reduced


Brian Friel was not only a much acclaimed playwright but he also adapted and translated, faithfully and tenderly, the plays of others.


The ITG would like to bring you two such works; very different in their content, style and approach but clearly from the pen of the same writer. Demonstrating Friel’s recurring interest in how we try to reinvent ourselves and the convenient lies we tell to the world around us.
One ‘after Chekhov’, the other ‘after Macklin’ and now sadly, one year on from his death, ‘After Friel’.



The London Vertigo, an 18th century farce by Charles Macklin, but now stripped down to its hilarious essentials, and ‘Afterplay’, an extension to the lives of two characters from two different Chekhov plays who meet 20 years after their dramatic embodiments left the stage.

The London Vertigo was our entry to FEATS 2016 where it picked up three awards: Best Production, Best Stage Presentation, and Best Actor

ITG: The Cripple of Inishmaan (7-11 Feb 2017)

Inishmaan image reduced

The Cripple of Inishmaan by Martin McDonagh, set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934, is a dark comedy. Inspired by a real event – the filming of The Man of Aran on Inishmore in 1934 – the story follows the impact of the news of the filming on a young Cripple Billy and the other inhabitants of Inishmaan.   Could this be their escape from life on Inishmaan where the tedium is broken only by the gossip and stories put about by Johnnypateenmike?

Cruel, sad, sometimes violent, yet achingly funny, the story reveals the characters in a way that makes you realise that people are not always as they seem.

  • Tuesday 7 – Saturday 11 February 2017

  • The Warehouse Studio Theatre
