‘Paul, darlin’, this isn’t a democracy. It’s a residents association.’

Lisa Tierney-Keogh’s razor-sharp This Beautiful Village premiered at the Abbey Theatre with a sold-out run in September 2019.

On a quiet street in leafy, suburban Dublin, local residents meet 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. Exposing every side of what it means to co-exist in Ireland today, six people will confront their pride, prejudice and privilege. It won’t be pretty. But it could be beautiful.
