Landmark Productions – Producer
Landmark Productions is one of Ireland’s leading theatre producers. Led by Anne Clarke, the company produces wide-ranging and ambitious work in Ireland and tours Irish work overseas.
Since its first production in 2004, the company has produced twenty-six plays – including six Irish premieres and fourteen world premieres – in Dublin.
Its productions include the Irish premieres of David Hare’s Skylight, Edward Albee’s The Goat, or Who is Sylvia?, Glen Berger’s Underneath the Lintel, David Harrower’s Knives in Hens and his Olivier Award-winning play Blackbird.
The company’s recent work includes Enda Walsh’s The Walworth Farce, starring Brendan Gleeson, Brian Gleeson and Domhnall Gleeson, together with the multi award-winning musical Once, which is currently playing for a third successive year at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin.
Landmark’s co-productions with Galway International Arts Festival include three plays by Enda Walsh: the world premieres of Arlington (Galway, Dublin and New York) and Ballyturk, which toured to Dublin, Cork and to the National Theatre in London; together with Misterman, starring Cillian Murphy, which toured to St Ann’s Warehouse in New York and to the National Theatre in London.
Mark O’Rowe’s Howie the Rookie, starring Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, played at the Barbican in London and at BAM in New York, where it was co-presented by the Irish Arts Center as part of BAM’s 2014 Next Wave season.
Other recent productions include Paul Howard’s Ross O’Carroll-Kelly trilogy Breaking Dad, Between Foxrock and a Hard Place, and The Last Days of the Celtic Tiger. A new one-man show starring Rory Nolan, Postcards from the Ledge, will have its world premiere at the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin in October 2017.
Most recently, Landmark produced the world premiere of Woyzeck in Winter, a fusion of Büchner’s play and Schubert’s Winterreise, in a co-production with Galway International Arts Festival. Starring Patrick O’Kane and Camille O’Sullivan, the production will play at the Barbican, London, in September 2017, and at the Gaiety Theatre, as part of Dublin Theatre Festival, in October 2017.
The company’s previous collaboration with Wide Open Opera saw the world premiere of Donnacha Dennehy’s and Enda Walsh’s first opera, The Last Hotel. A co-production with WOO, it had its world premiere at the Edinburgh International Festival in August 2015, before touring to the Royal Opera House in London, to the Dublin Theatre Festival, to St Ann’s Warehouse in New York and to Les Théâtres de la Ville, Luxembourg. A film version of the opera, commissioned by Sky Arts under its Amplify programme and co-produced with Brink Films, was broadcast in April 2016.
Landmark Productions received the Judges’ Special Award in The Irish Times Theatre Awards for 2011, in recognition of its ‘sustained excellence in programming and for developing imaginative partnerships to bring quality theatre to the Irish and international stage.’ Anne Clarke received the Special Tribute Award in The Irish Times Theatre Awards for 2015, in recognition of her work ‘as a producer of world-class theatre in the independent sector in Ireland’.
