Landmark Productions and Galway International Arts Festival present the world premiere of Arlington, written and directed by Enda Walsh and choreographed by Emma Martin.

Arlington [a love story] is taking to Galway Internation Arts Festival from July 7th to the 24th in Leisureland, Galway.

Matinees 14th, 16th, 17th, 23rd & 24th July at 2pm. Previews of the show take place from July 7th to the 10th and there are no shows on July 12th and 18th.

The Guardian have said about the show that it is, “one of the most dazzling wordsmiths of contemporary theatre.”

The show is based in a waiting room, inside a tower, where character Isla is waiting for her number of fate to be called, and a man faces a stark decision.

Enda Walsh creates the midst of a bleak and terrifying world, daring to imagine such a strange, yet tender love throughout the story. The story’s power is to be endured with the compelling human spirit.

The show stars Charlie Murphy, Hugh O’Conor and Oona Doherty.
Post-show talk is held by moderator Professor Patrick Lonergan, NUI Galway.

Show starts at 8pm, tickets are from €22 – €32.50 and available from: http://www.giaf.ie/events/arlington.
