The Approach - Live Broadcast from Dublin, Ireland, on Thursday 21st January


Landmark Productions 

in association with Project Arts Centre and St. Ann's Warehouse


by Mark O’Rowe

starring Cathy Belton, Derbhle Crotty and Aisling O’Sullivan


'a stunning study of everyday relationships …

 breathtaking performances'

The Observer


Following previous sell-out performances in Edinburgh and Dublin, The Approach now makes its debut on the virtual world stage with three live broadcasts from Project Arts Centre in Dublin this January.

"It takes a crisis of some sort sometimes, or an upheaval, 

for people to really evaluate how they feel about one another, doesn’t it?"


Utterly riveting and engrossing, Mark O’Rowe’s remarkable play reveals a profound truth about relationships, and our deep, abiding need to make sense of our world.

Three conversations draw us into the inner lives of Anna, Cora and Denise. What will they reveal to each other?  And what does each of them have to hide? 

The Approach is a play about being human, an exploration of betrayal, and an appeal to listen before it’s too late.

The Approach brings back to the stage ‘three of the finest performers of their generation’ (The Irish Times) - Cathy Belton, Derbhle Crotty and Aisling O’Sullivan - in what have been described as ‘breathtaking performances’ - ★★★★★ The Observer.

Wherever you are in the world, we hope you'll come together online with friends and family, to experience this wonderfully absorbing play for yourself.
