Following previous sell-out performances in Edinburgh and Dublin, The Approach now makes its debut on the virtual world stage with three live broadcasts this January from Project Arts Centre.
“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?”
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.
When The Approach first premiered at Project Arts Centre in 2018 it was hailed by audiences and critics alike and received a raft of reviews across the board. These live broadcast performances will bring 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.
