MARK O’ROWE | WRITER/DIRECTOR OF THE APPROACH
Watch Mark O’Rowe talk about writing The Approach for three incredible actors; Cathy Belton, Derbhle Crotty and Aisling O’Sullivan.

CATHY BELTON, DERBHLE CROTTY & AISLING O’SULLIVAN
Watch Cathy Belton, Derbhle Crotty and Aisling O’Sullivan talk about working with writer and director Mark O’Rowe on The Approach.
‘He’s so enquiring. He’s so curious … Mark has got such extraordinary, alive curiosity about people.’
CATHY BELTON ON THE APPROACH
‘The writing is so good … this play should take hours to tell but Mark has condensed it into this little jewel of a piece’
DERBHLE CROTTY ON THE APPROACH
‘What I’m really experiencing with this play is that it is a play for grown-ups …. and that’s something that I have been longing for in my own play-going experience – something to speak to my experience as a person who has been in the world for this long.’
AISLING O’SULLIVAN ON THE APPROACH
‘I love Mark’s work, I love Mark as a human being. I think he’s a searcher; he’s examining things on a level that I love to watch and hear and think about.’
