Galway International Arts Festival
Five meticulously detailed rooms house clues to the characters once confined within their walls in this immersive theatre installation. Together, six audience members enter one of the five rooms, exploring the scene for a few moments. Then the recorded audio begins – an absorbing and haunting aural account of solitude, before audiences are ushered into the next room for another story. Contemplative and atmospheric, this event brings Enda Walsh’s five poetic short narratives together for the first time. In each room the highly intimate lives of an individual are heard, narrated by some of Ireland’s finest actors: Niall Buggy, Charlie Murphy, Donal O’Kelly, Paul Reid and Eileen Walsh.
