Ballyturk (Hoge Mote) by Enda Walsh is a physical comedy revolving around the big questions: life, death, human existence, our fleeting passage on this crazy planet. 
Two quite elderly children, called 1 and 2, playfully try to fantasize a way of escaping from their daily lives. 3 comes in and offers another perspective, a way out. Everything proves to be/can be different.

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.
