Empress Theatre and Seymour Centre present

Arlington

2 - 24 Aug 2024

From the writer of Once, Enda Walsh’s Arlington is a performance that almost defies category: a wild fusion of story, physicality, and technical wizardry.

Isla waits out her days in a state-controlled tower block, trading her memories for a chance to live. Her only companion is the anonymous young man who records her stories from the other side of the wall. As he offers glimpses of the world beyond the tower, an unexpected love story takes hold, forcing an unthinkable fate. In the grip of a brutal regime, hope and tenderness splinter the edges of Enda Walsh’s dark fable of surveillance, isolation and captivity.

After premiering at the Galway International Arts Festival and transferring to New York for a smash-hit run at St Ann’s Warehouse, Enda Walsh’s dystopian drama Arlington makes its Australian premiere at the Seymour Centre in 2024.

The New York Times
★★★★★ Beautifully stylised study of compassion and conditioning in the modern world.
The Stage
★★★★ Dance, art and poetry explode in Enda Walsh's brave new world ... a story of love and oppression that echoes Orwell’s 1984.
