What I saw outside the window, kept me from sleeping.

In 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 the midst of a bleak and terrifying world, Enda Walsh has dared to imagine a strange, tender love story.

Landmark Productions and Galway International Arts Festival presented the world premiere of Arlington in July 2016. Written and directed by Enda Walsh and choreographed by Emma Martin, Arlington reunited the world-class creative team behind Misterman, Ballyturk and The Last Hotel.

Starring Charlie Murphy, Hugh O’Conor and Oona Doherty, and featuring the voices of Olwen Fouéré, Helen Norton and Stephen Rea, Arlington is a compelling ode to the human spirit and its powers to endure.

World Premiere.
