Daniel Radcliffe returns to the West End

I haven’t really paid much attention to Daniel Radcliffe aside from his Harry Potter days but I have to say I’m curious about his latest adventure in which he makes his return to the West End in dark comedy The Cripple of Inishmaan.
The plot for the play is outlined as:
Set on the small Aran Islands community of Inishmaan off the Western Coast of Ireland, c. 1934, the inhabitants are excited to learn of a Hollywood film crew’s arrival in neighbouring Inishmore to make a documentary about life on the islands. “Cripple” Billy Claven, eager to escape the gossip, poverty and boredom of Inishmaan, vies for a part in the film, and to everyone’s surprise, the orphan and outcast gets his chance”

The production first opened in 1996 and now it is making it’s return at the Noel Coward theatre for 12 weeks only- running until 31st August.
If it were easier for me to get to London without the whole trip costing an absolute fortune I think I’d be going to see this, the plot sounds gripping and it’d be good to see if Daniel can move beyond the Harry Potter I see him as in my head.

What do you think? Would you go and see this, or have you seen it?
