We like to bring new and rarely performed plays to the circuit e.g. 'Family Plot' 2015, 'No Romance' 2014, 'The Hen Night Epiphany' 2013. This year we are delighted to present Mike Finn's 'The Quiet Moment'.

If using Sat Nav, be careful when inputting. There are at least three Ballyduffs in County Waterford. In particular, there is a village called Ballyduff about five miles from Waterford City. This is not us! Coordinates 52° 08' 51" N, 8° 03' 06" W will get you pretty near the correct Ballyduff! more
