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.”

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…
