About this event

A Gate Theatre revival of Enda Walsh's acclaimed drama THE NEW ELECTRIC BALLROOM, directed by Emma Jordan and starring Barbara Brennan, Jane Brennan, Orla Fitzgerald and Marty Rea. Tickets from €15.

Trapped in the memoires of their youthful nights at The New Electric Ballroom, sisters Breda and Clara reflect on lost love and what might have been.

As they reminisce, their younger sister Ada looks to re-ignite Breda and Clara’s spirits, and resurrect the smallest glimmer of love and hope in their remote fishing village home.

A virtuoso, absurdist fable of the debilitating effects of small-town life, Enda Walsh’s stunning play won an Edinburgh Fringe First Award in 2008 and confirmed him as one of Ireland’s most distinctive and dynamic writers of the modern era.

Starring Barbara Brennan, Jane Brennan, Orla Fitzgerald and Marty Rea, this new production is directed by Emma Jordan.
