With Ballyturk, the Irish writer Enda Walsh (Disco Pigs, Hunger, Lazarus, etc.) unmistakably stands on the shoulders of his predecessors, among them Samuel Beckett and Dylan Thomas. Imagine a Buster Keaton staging of Under Milk Wood: an explosion of verbal and physical generosity, a superabundance of dynamism and zest for life.
For Olympique Dramatique, this marks a return to a tradition of dark Irish comedies like the plays of Martin McDonagh (The Cripple, The Lieutenant of Inishmore) with which they began their career as a young theatre collective. At the same time, it is a fresh encounter with two old masters, two even younger elderly children: Jan Decleir performs in the show and Pjeroo Roobjee lends his words.
