Isla waits in a waiting room in a tower as a man watches her, documents her every move and pulls her dreams from her. In this brave new world, Enda Walsh dares to imagine that the individual might somehow survive and that there’s still a place for love. 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).

Written and directed by Enda Walsh and the creative design team behind The Walworth Farce and MistermanStarring Charlie Murphy, Hugh O’Conor and Oona Doherty.

Runtime: Approx. 90 minutes

Reviews: Arlington

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…
