Ballyturk is a world of cartoonish exaggeration, tumbling with madcap fictions, avalanches of props and shrieking impersonations—in short, an Enda Walsh play” (The Irish Times). Gut-wrenchingly funny and achingly poignant, it scratches beneath the surface of rural Ireland and Walsh’s worlds of Misterman and The Walworth Farce.

The lives of two men unravel quickly over the course of 90 minutes. Where are they? Who are they? What room is this, and what might be beyond the walls?

Starring Olwen Fouéré, Mikel Murfi, and Tadhg Murphy

Runtime: Approx. 90 minutes with no intermission

WINNER: Best Production Irish Times Theatre Awards 2015

★★★★ "Richly theatrical experience...Top 10 Theater Show of the Year"—The Guardian

★★★★ "[Olwen] Fouéré’s is a fascinating performance. Tadgh Murphy, a physical livewire. With Mikel Murfi’s spry physical genius...manic energy...excellently delivered"—The Irish Times

★★★★ "A deliciously strange new play from Enda Walsh"—Evening Standard
