Ballyturk set to come to the Olympia, Dublin

BallyturkThe hugely anticipated play Ballyturk by Enda Walsh will come to The Olympia Theatre* this August.

The production, which will make its world premiere at the Galway Arts Festival in July, promises to be one of the theatrical highlights of the year and reunites the creative team behind Enda Walsh’s Misterman. The internationally-acclaimed hit play – a previous Landmark Productions and Galway Arts Festival co-production – starred Cillian Murphy in a sensational solo performance.

Ballyturk marks Cillian Murphy’s return to the stage. He will star alongside Walsh’s long-time collaborator Mikel Murfi, and the internationally – acclaimed film and theatre actor Stephen Rea.

The play is Enda Walsh’s first new play in four years and his first since he won a Tony Award for Once, the Broadway musical, currently running in New York, London’s West End and on a major US tour.

Reuniting the creative team that was responsible for Misterman, the production will be directed by Enda Walsh with sets and costumes designed by Jamie Vartan and lighting by Adam Silverman. Sound will be designed by Helen Atkinson, with original music composed by Teho Teardo.

Ballyturk runs at The Olympia Theatre from 07 – 23 August 2014. Tickets from €27.50 including booking fee are on sale now at Ticketmaster or The Olympia Theatre box office, 73 Dame Street, Dublin 2.

*Update (06-06-2014): Ballyturk will continue at Cork Opera House, Cork from  26 – 30 August 2014. Booking via Cork Opera House online / 021 427 0022
