‘Staring back behind the blusher and the eyeshadow a girl who’s yet to be kissed. Properly kissed.’
Sisters Breda, Clara, and Ada are trapped within their memories of the New Electric Ballroom. It was the time of their lives…… or was it?
In a dark and isolated Irish fishing village three sisters are haunted by days past when anything was possible. Together they share tightly gripping family bonds, heavy sitting memories and a hopeful glimmer of escape. Enter Patsy, a lonely gossip and fishmonger who is searching desperately for a higher purpose beyond delivering seafood…….
The New Electric Ballroom received its English-language premiere, in 2008, by Druid at the Galway Arts Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Tickets €12 (Booking fees may apply).
