Through A Glass Darkly is a vibrant, moving adaptation of the Oscar-winning film by legendary Swedish director Ingmar Bergman.

Set on a stark, stony island, this intimate, tightly condensed family drama depicts the unraveling of Karin – a young wife, an older sister and an only daughter.

Torn by the duty she feels for the men that love her and the inner voices that compel her towards freedom, Karin is faced with a choice that will alter her fate and that of her family.

Strongly influenced by his work in theatre with Strindberg, Ibsen and Chekhov, Through A Glass Darkly paved the way for Bergman’s most celebrated, dark and stylised films establishing him as one of the world’s greatest directors.

The Corn Exchange, in celebration of 20 years of theatre-making in Dublin, bring their stark precision and transformational acting style to this gripping drama of love and desire, faith and doubt, and the creative impulse within us all.

We’re delighted to welcome The Corn Exchange back to Project following their stunning adaptation of A Girl is a Half-formed Thing by Eimear McBride here in February.


 

“…with Corn Exchange, it’s the way they tell it that lifts things into the truly extraordinary.”
