“RIVETING FEVER DREAM OF A PLAY…
The most sophisticated visual and sound effects on display in New York…Imagine if Samuel Beckett wrote ‘Black Mirror:’ that’s Arlington.

The New York Times – Critics’ Pick!

A waiting room, inside a tower: Isla waits for her number to be called. A young woman finally understands her fate. And a young man faces a stark decision. In a bleak and terrifying world that “echoes Orwell’s 1984” (The Guardian), Enda Walsh and the creative design team behind Misterman and The Last Hotel dare to imagine a strange and tender love story.

Italian film composer Teho Teardo and choreographer Emma Martin join the three exquisite performers to “push theatrical boundaries resulting in a powerful experience in which [dance], music and video collide” (Sunday Times). “Hugh O’Conor is an absolute joy… Charlie Murphy is simply astonishing… Oona Doherty is utterly exhilarating…” –(The Arts Review).

Runtime: Approx. 90 minutes

Takes your breath away…A sensorium of imagery and sound…
Gorgeous choreography by Emma Martin… An abstract work of art meant to help us see the spaces in which we all perform.

Dance, art and poetry explode in Enda Walsh's brave new world. The playwright embraces a new form of category-defying theatre in a story of love and oppression that echoes Orwell’s 1984.

Intensely moving, layered performances… A powerfully political work… that's thought-provoking and bewildering… given what can only be called a towering production…
–THE INDEPENDENT

This is Walsh’s most overtly political play to date. Walsh and the creative team combine stunning effects with playful physicality… Jack Phelan provides some of the most stirring video work that’s been seen on an Irish stage...
