About Ballyturk 

Written and Directed by Enda Walsh “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 American Premiere! WINNER – Best Production Irish Times Theatre Awards

About Book Launch: For the Love of Endings by Ben Purkert — in conversation w/ Meghan O’Rourke 

How does it feel to lose your planet, your lover, yourself? Purkert’s debut collection, For the Love of Endings, tests what connects us to this earth and to each other. Light-footed and dark-humored, his brilliantly crafted poems examine “the gap / between the world & how / people paint it: dark, distant, there / for the taking.” He makes us look at our disintegrating world head on and see what we’ve done to it, and what it has done to us.
