St. Ann's Warehouse presents the US premiere of Enda Walsh's ('Once') enigmatic, two-person drama about two men whose lives unravel quickly over the course of 90 minutes. More…
Where are these men? Who are they? What room is this, and what might be beyond the walls? Equal parts comic and achingly poignant, 'Ballyturk' scratches beneath the surface of rural Ireland and Walsh’s worlds of 'Misterman' and 'The Walworth Farce.'
See it if High-energy surreal physical comedy about life, love and death. Rapid fire surprises. Stunning expressionist set and music. Super creative.
Don't see it if No traditional narrative or plot. Seemingly crazy nonsense that eventually sort of fits together. Do you like an avant-garde challenge?
See it if you like theater that blasts beyond the bounds of the well-made play because the matter it wants to deal with just won't fit the form.
Don't see it if for you a play is only a play when it delivers its audience a fully coherent story about comfortably recognizable human beings.
See it if 21st century post-expressionism is your thing. A very Irish meditation on small life & large death with more than a single shot of Becket...
Don't see it if thrown in. Sometimes daring can be pretentious & self-indulgent. A free-form presentation with a classic ending.
