New Ireland: The Enda Walsh Festival begins Artistic Director David Muse's initiative to present and produce works from around the world. An exploration of the work of one phenomenal playwright, the festival includes productions of three of Enda Walsh's plays -- Druid, Ireland's production of Penelope, and Studio's own productions of The Walworth Farce and The New Electric Ballroom. To further explore Walsh's work, as well as his place in the past and future of Irish theatre, The Studio Theatre is offering a wide range of free, exciting events. These include a conversation with the playwright and Druid Ireland's Artistic Director Garry Hynes; readings of contemporary Irish plays; an in-depth seminar on Walsh's work and influences; a day-long symposium on New Irish Arts, and more. Join us for this celebration of Enda Walsh's brash, exciting, and endlessly inventive work.
