About this show

Like The Walworth Farce, which will be touring America this fall, The New Electric Ballroom unleashes the power of storytelling and everyday mythologizing within the claustrophobic worlds that Walsh obsessively creates and recreates around shared calamitous moments from the long-gone past. The story unfolds in a small fishing town on the west coast of Ireland, where, night after night, Breda and Clara, two aging sisters, relive the memories of a single night in the early 1960s when a seductive rock singer at the New Electric Ballroom broke both their fragile hearts. Breda, Clara and their much younger sister, Ada, remain trapped in the story, costumed by their tuille skirts, bolero jackets, pink high heels and lipstick until a lonely fisherman appears as Ada?s chance to escape.
