The things on our radar for this weekend and the coming week ahead. Happy weekend from IMAGE!
See The Approach Here
Listen carefully …Three women. Three Conversations. As the details of what they share begin to diverge, we realise that a subtle game of survival is being played. Both psychological puzzle and quietly devastating tragedy, The Approach explores the inner lives of Anna, Cora and Denise as they desperately try to make sense of their world. What will their conversations reveal? And what does each of them have to hide?
The Approach runs from Thursday, February 1st, to Saturday, February 24th at the Project Arts Centre and stars three of Ireland’s leading actors; Cathy Belton, Derbhle Crotty and Aisling O’Sullivan. The Approach is Mark O’Rowe’s first new play since the smash hit Our Few and Evil Days. Click here for tickets and show times.
