The New Electric Ballroom
- Edinburgh Fringe First Award - 2008
A dark fable of the emotionally stultifying effects of small-town life, from the author of Disco Pigs and The Walworth Farce.
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's play The New Electric Ballroom was first staged by Druid Theatre Company at the Galway Arts Festival in July 2008 and later at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, during the 2008 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The production won an Edinburgh Fringe First Award and was revived on tour in 2009.
The New Electric Ballroom is also available in the volume Enda Walsh Plays: Two.
