★★★★ ‘of all the streamed productions I have seen in the past year, this one comes closest to capturing the focus and tension of live theatre’ – The Guardian

Utterly riveting and engrossing, Mark O’Rowe’s 60 minute jewel of a play’ (The Guardian) reveals a profound truth about relationships, and our deep, abiding need to make sense of our world.

Three conversations draw us into the inner lives of Anna, Cora and Denise. What will they reveal to each other?  And what does each of them have to hide? 

The Approach is a play about being human, an exploration of betrayal, and an appeal to listen before it’s too late.

The Approach will bring back to the stage ‘three of the finest performers of their generation’ (The Irish Times) – Cathy Belton, Derbhle Crotty and Aisling O’Sullivan – in what have been described as ‘breathtaking performances’ – ★★★★★ The Observer.

Wherever you are in the world, we hope you’ll come together online with friends and family, to experience this wonderfully absorbing play for yourself.
