The Saviour - Video on Demand as part of Cork Midsummer Festival


Landmark Productions presents


a new play by Deirdre Kinahan

directed by Louise Lowe

starring Marie Mullen and Brian Gleeson


Landmark presents the world premiere of Deirdre Kinahan’s blistering new play as part of Cork Midsummer Festival 2021. Louise Lowe directs Marie Mullen and Brian Gleeson in three performances which will be broadcast live, using the beautiful Everyman auditorium as a backdrop.

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 Productions’ 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.

Share this unique experience with audiences all around the world, and watch The Saviour performed live, from the Everyman stage.

Supported by the Arts Council through an Arts Grant Funding award.
