The centrepiece of the Tron’s autumn season is what the Glasgow theatre describes as “one of the most extraordinary, hilarious and surreal plays in modern theatre”.
Ballyturk, by highly acclaimed writer/director Enda Walsh, melds shades of Under Milk Wood with the idea of an artificial reality as most famously explored in The Truman Show.
Its characters, played by Simon Donaldson and Grant O’Rourke, are simply called “One” and “Two”. They imagine the world outside the four walls of their room, and wonder if they will ever see it for themselves.
Designed and lit by the same team who worked on 2016 hit The Lonesome West, it’s directed by Andy Arnold, artistic director of the Tron. Their production of Walsh’s play (the first in the UK) runs until October 20.
