"Haunting power…" The Guardian

"Meticulous design…" —Sunday Business Post

In Room 303, an old man lies alone, waiting, as his time nears an end. / At the age of 6, a girl leaves her bedroom and family home and walks. She never stops. Until now. / In a small kitchen, standing by her sink—a wife wills her own implosion. A trio of installations, each room framing a new voice from Enda Walsh in this absorbing exploration of solitude.

“...Enda Walsh’s brave new world.” —The Guardian

A waiting room, inside a tower: Isla waits for her number to be called. A young dancer finally understands her fate. And a young man faces his stark decision. In a bleak and terrifying world that “echoes Orwell’s 1984” (The Guardian), Enda Walsh dares to imagine a strange and tender love story.
