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.

Starring Olwen Fouéré, Mikel Murfi and Tadhg Murphy American Premiere! WINNER – Best Production Irish Times Theatre Awards
