In 2009 The New Electric Ballroom received its Australian and American premieres, toured extensively in Ireland and was also staged in London.
'Funny, tender-hearted and at times pitch dark.'
The New Electric Ballroom is a coiled, dark, glitter-dusted fable of the emotionally stultifying effects of small-town life. Here possibilities are endless, hopes are high and opening your heart might be the one thing that saves you.
This production has wowed audiences in Edinburgh, Perth, London, Galway, Dublin and on tour around Ireland. The winning combination of great writing and breathtaking performances – “the acting is superlative” New York Times – is simply too good to miss!
‘Mr Walsh … has a breathtaking lyrical gift capable of encompassing daft humor and spine-chilling truths in language that still remains powerfully real’- New York Times
‘pricelessly funny … deeply moving’- Variety
