In a waiting room, inside a tower, Isla waits for her number to be called. A young woman finally understands her fate. And a young man faces a stark decision.

In the midst of a bleak and terrifying world, Enda Walsh has dared to imagine a strange, tender love story. Landmark Productions and Galway International Arts Festival are proud to present the world premiere of Arlington, written and directed by Enda Walsh and choreographed by Emma Martin.

Starring Charlie Murphy, Hugh O’Conor and Oona Doherty – and reuniting the world–class creative team behind Misterman, Ballyturk and The Last Hotel – Arlington is a compelling ode to the human spirit and its power to endure. 

The venue space, Leisureland, is being transformed for the show, with a new space specially created by award-winning set designer Jamie Vartan and his team. The new space features tiered and allocated seating.
