Balally Players Drama Group, based in Dundrum, presents ‘Balally Shorts’, a selection of 4 very different short plays; a mixture of drama and comedy; for your delectation and delight. Two  of the plays are by American playwrights and two are by Irish playwrights.

It is exciting to have in the programme the world premiere of ‘Handbag’ by Tom Byrne – who is well known on the drama circuit as director, adjudicator and more recently – writer!

‘Handbag’ by Tom Byrne. Directed by Philip Byrne. Dark Comedy – Philly and Gobbo are up to no good! They are off exploring an old abandoned factory at the edge of their town when they discover a handbag with more in it than they were hoping for!

‘Ohio Impromptu’ by Samuel Beckett. Directed by Niall Balfe. Postmodern drama – An exploration of the poignant interdependency of two characters, Reader and Listener who, in reading and listening to the story of their relationship, echo the haunting quality of memory and nostalgia.

‘DMV Tyrant’ by Christopher Durang. Directed by Barry O’Connor. Comedy – A woman whose driver’s licence has expired must negotiate the bureaucracy and disinterest of the New York Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). It does not go well!

‘Judas Iscariot’s Day Off’ by David MacGregor. Directed by Sean Murphy. Absurd Comedy – Judas gets one day off every thousand years, and he’s using this one to lawyer up and get out of the 9th Circle of Hell for good.
