Arlington

By Enda Walsh

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£7.99

A strange, tender love story from the author of Disco Pigs and The Walworth Farce.

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, Arlington is a compelling ode to the human spirit and its power to endure. It premiered at Galway International Arts Festival in 2016 in a production by the festival and Landmark Productions, directed by the playwright.

Enda Walsh's play Arlington is published in this edition alongside three short theatre installations – Kitchen, A Girl's Bedroom and Room 303 – performed at the 2016 Galway International Arts Festival under the collective title Rooms.

New York Times

'A powerful dystopian drama... a new form of comprehensive, category-defying theatre'

Guardian

'Tremendous... [a] beautifully stylised study of compassion and conditioning in the modern world'

The Stage

'Angry, despairing, eruptive and eventually accepting, this is not a play about grief. This is grief'
