There’s a new man in Máire’s life. But some people aren’t happy.
On the morning of her 67th birthday, Máire sits up in bed enjoying a cigarette. There is a man downstairs. She is blooming.
The Saviour is a new play that charts the extraordinary shift in social, political and religious life in Ireland over the past thirty years. It is a play that asks questions about responsibility, about how we respond to trauma, and about the tricky question of forgiveness.
Landmark's previous work at Cork Midsummer Festival includes Asking for It and Theatre for One. In January of this year, it launched Landmark Live, a new online streaming platform to enable the company to bring the thrill of live theatre to audiences in their homes, wherever they may be.
