Landmark Productions and GIAF hit production Arlington by Enda Walsh takes New York by Storm and is chosen as New York Times' 'Critics Pick' by Ben Brantley, while Enda Walsh’s Rooms, a Galway International Arts Festival production, wows audiences and critics at Cybert Tire NYC.
Arlington, the 2016 GIAF hit co-produced by Landmark Productions and Galway International Arts Festival, opened at St. Ann's Warehouse in Brooklyn to a fantastic reception. This remarkable production is written and directed by Enda Walsh with choreography by Emma Martin. Following hot on the heels of the Arlington opening, and in collaboration with the Irish Arts Center in New York, Enda Walsh’s Rooms, a Galway International Arts Festival production, opened earlier this week at Cybert Tire, the future home of the new IAC, and will also run until May 28.

Arlington - NY Times Critic's Pick
'riveting fever dream of a play...'
'Arlington jolts the system through some of the most sophisticated visual and sound designs on display in New York.'
'Ms. Murphy, (shattering as Isla), Hugh O'Conor and Oona Doherty in bravura performances...'
'dazzling video montage...'
'as creepy and compelling a vision of a blasted tomorrow as you're going to find these days...'
What The New York Times, Ben Brantley review said about Enda Walsh's Rooms:
'...three self-contained spaces ...precisely furnished chambers... suspended in murky twilight...'
'A distinct, self hypnotised voice fills each room... guaranteed to take up residence in your head...'
'The contemplative Rooms... disturbingly relaxing.'
