This Beautiful Village – A new version of the original award-winning play by Lisa Tierney-Keogh.

Playwright Lisa Tierney-Keogh has adapted and updated the winner of the 2020 Irish Times Irish Theatre Award for Best New Play to reflect the lockdown. This Beautiful Virtual Village will be available online from 7.30pm on the 17th of August for one month only.

On a quiet street in leafy, suburban Dublin, local residents meet online about a piece of graffiti. Who did it? What does it mean? And what's to be done about it? They have wine and a quorum. Nothing can go wrong.

This Beautiful Virtual Village is a new adaptation of the razor-sharp play that exposes every side of what it means to co-exist in Ireland today. Set over one night, six people will confront their pride, prejudice and privilege. It won't be pretty. But it could be beautiful.
