Ballycartoon Players present

The Only Punk Rocker in the Village

Lone Punk Rocker brings terror to sleepy village

Saturday July 29 8pm @Attic Theatre Doolin V95 DE2X

On Saturday night, July 29th at 8pm at the Attic Theatre @ Hotel Doolin there will be a performance of the play ‘The Only Punk Rocker in the Village’. This is a fundraiser for Ballycartoon Players who are bringing‘The Only Punk Rocker in the Village’ to the world renewed Edinburgh Fringe Festival this August.

‘The Only Punk Rocker in the Village’ is an original story developed by Dermott Petty and Joan O’Hanrahan in 2019. The play is written by Dermott Petty and directed by Joan O’Hanrahan and it successfully played at the Barnstable Fringe Festival, The Royal Spa in Lisdoonvarna & the Doolin Writers Festival. They had planned on touring in 2020 sadly Covid stoped this from happening. This fundraiser is held with the intention of off setting the cost of going to the Edinburgh Fringe.

In 1978 the traditional Irish village of Lisdoonvarna is invaded by a new dangerous phenomenon, Punk Rock. Yet in this village there is only 1 Punk Rocker.

‘The Only Punk Rocker in the Village’ play takes place in rural Ireland in the 1970’s when[1]  a teenagers discovery of Punk Rock turns his life upside down, causing consideration, shock and misunderstanding with his parents, community and friends. This new public enemy, that 1 Punk Rocker in the Village, has notions of rebellion, grandeur and turning the world upside down. He is also trying to get a girlfriend. What could go wrong?

The Ballycartoon Players production of ‘The Only Punk Rocker in the Village’ will be performing at the theSpace Triplex (V38),The Prince Phillip Building, EH8 9D on Monday August 14th until Saturday August 19th @ 5:15pm.

This will be Edinburgh Fringe Premiere of the play ‘The Only Punk Rocker in the Village’ The originsof the play began from a poem of Dermott Petty’s titled ‘When Punk Rock Came to North Clare’  published by Revival Press in Limerick. The play will be Directed by Joan O’Hanrahan and will be performed by Dermott Petty.

Established in 2015 in North Clare by Joan O’Hanrahan and Dermott Petty, the Ballycartoon Players have been performing and touring in Ireland, presenting new original theatre that reflects the stories, humours and challenges of life in rural Ireland in the 21st century. For the first time since being formed, Ballycartoon Players are making their Edinburgh Festival Fringe debut with a show that gives an insight to a world that seems so long ago, yet was not so long ago.
