“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

WINNER – Best Production Irish Times Theatre Awards 2015

Runtime: Approx. 90 minutes with no intermission

Enda Walsh’s wilfully cryptic, gorgeously poetic and clownishly physical new play... with fearless physicality that catapults your heart into your mouth... stunning... beautiful... dazzling
–TIME OUT LONDON

[A] high-octane production you won't quickly forget...
–THE NEW YORK TIMES

A crazy, wildly colourful collision of angst, poetry and slapstick … it’s a play with a heart of deep darkness that's touching and hysterically funny...
–METRO LONDON
