Enda Walsh - PLAYS TWO
Published by Nick Hern Books
It collects together four full-length plays three of which were produced by Galway's Druid Theatre Company, three of which were performed at the Edinburgh Fringe, and two of which transferred to London's National Theatre
Also included are two fascinating short plays and a Foreword by the author
The Walworth Farce (2006)
A madcap yet tender play about what can happen when we become stuck in the stories we tell about our lives
The New Electric Ballroom (2008)
A dark, glitter-dusted fable of the emotionally stultifying effects of small-town life
In a savage and riveting take on the classic Greek myth of Odysseus's wife, Penelope (2010) sees four ridiculous men facing their inevitable deaths, and playing for an unwinnable love
This volume also includes two short plays ...
My Friend Duplicity (2010), which went on to inspire Ballyturk
And Room 303 (2011).
