St. Ann’s Warehouse, Landmark Productions, and Project Arts Centre will present Mark O’Rowe’s The Approach, live-streamed from Dublin’s Project Arts Centre, January 21, 23, and 24. The psychological thriller will subsequently be available on demand through January 31.
Cathy Belton, Derbhle Crotty, and Aisling O’Sullivan portray three women, two of them sisters, who have drifted apart and are now catching up over coffee. Over the course of three conversations spanning five years, we learn that they have allowed relationships with their partners to come between their relationships with each other. Gradually, a common secret of tragic consequence is revealed.
Written and directed by O’Rowe, The Approach also features set and lighting design by Sinead McKenna, costume design by Joan O'Clery, and sound design by Philip Stewart.
O’Rowe’s work was last seen in New York in 2014, when BAM and Irish Arts Center co-presented Landmark’s production of Howie the Rookie.
Tickets start at $20 and are available now at StAnnsWarehouse.org. In connection with the production, St. Ann’s Warehouse presents a conversation with O’Rowe, the cast members, and Irish author Louise O’Neill following the January 23 performance.
