The play is a comedy which reunites the creative team behind the Dublin playwright’s internationally-acclaimed play Misterman, in which Murphy took centre stage in a solo performance.

Speaking from Manchester, where he is currently filming BBC drama series Peaky Blinders, Murphy said: “I’m thrilled to be working with Enda on his amazing new play Ballyturk and to work with Mikel Murfi and Stephen Rea and the Misterman creative team."
