Post Show Discussion: Monday 12 Feb with Mark O’Rowe and the cast
Duration: 65 mins, no interval
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?
Starring 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.
Writer and Director: Mark O’Rowe
Lighting Designer: Sinead McKenna
