A haunting and absorbing immersive theatre installation

Review this show


Ushered into a series of five realistic spaces, housing clues to the character once confined within their walls, you’ll hear haunting accounts of solitude as part of an immersive theatre installation.

As one of an audience of six, you are invited to step inside meticulously designed and detailed rooms, exploring each for two minutes before recorded audio begins. Comprising absorbing and vivid texts by Enda Walsh that draw us into the highly intimate lives of five individuals, they are narrated by some of Ireland’s most distinct voices – Niall Buggy, Charlie Murphy, Donal O’Kelly, Paul Reid and Eileen Walsh.

This is the first time that Enda Walsh’s five short stories to date are presented together as one performance. Unrelated yet all springing from the loneliness experienced by ordinary people, they take on a quiet poetic force through remarkable storytelling, punctuated by stark lighting and sound. Contemplative, atmospheric and sure to stay with you long after you’ve emerged.

Age Recommendation: 14+

Critic reviews

This immersive show with five 15-minute mini dramas floods us with poetic images of mental disarray

· The Times

An atmospheric immersive installation of five short, dense, despairing plays by Enda Walsh

· The Stage

The soul-sick journeys of Walsh’s prisoners will not fade for those willing to sit with his wondrous, if miserable, characters for a while

· Londonist

An exciting theatrical experience that is captivating and deeply thought out

· A Younger Theatre

Transferred to London from Galway, Enda Walsh’s installation puts the audience centre stage

· Financial Times

Part installation, part prose-poem, this strangely beautiful piece takes its audience into other people’s heads

· The Guardian

Unsettling, slightly unwieldy installation theatre show set around five Enda Walsh monologues

· Time Out

Every structure is highly evocative: from the different smells to the creaks in the floorboards

· Broadway World

Thematically, the installation is brilliantly unique; it lingers long after you get home
