TICKETS FOR THE NEW ELECTRIC BALLROOM AND THE ENDA WALSH ONE ACT PLAYS ARE SOLD OUT.
Hot on the heels of the critically acclaimed run of the Druid production of Enda Walsh’s The Walworth Farce in New York and the Cannes Camera d’Or for the film, Hunger, (co-written by Enda Walsh and director Steve McQueen), this summer Druid is giving an unprecedented commitment to the new work of one writer with an ENDA WALSH SEASON as part of Galway Arts Festival.
ABOUT THE ENDA WALSH SEASON
The New Electric Ballroom, a new play written and directed by Enda Walsh, is a coiled, dark, glitter-dusted fable of the emotionally stultifying effects of small-town life.
In this new play by Enda, three sisters in a remote fishing village, trapped in the years that have passed since their halcyon days at the New Electric Ballroom, are still obsessed by darker memories of something resembling romance.
Enda Walsh is internationally celebrated for his exhilarating wordplay and the sheer visceral power his stories release in performance. This latest work promises to be among the most explosive and compelling yet from one of the leading playwrights of our time.

ENDA WALSH’S ONE ACT PLAYS (double bill)
Lynndie’s Gotta Gun is a disquieting, highly charged riff on the US female soldier, Lynndie England, notoriously pictured at Abu Ghraib humiliating Iraqi prisoners, while Gentrification examines the perils of parenthood and Coke can rings in Walsh’s inimitable style.
