THE talented performers over at Waterford Youth Arts are bringing a powerful drama to the stage.
The group will stage ‘Is This Good Enough’ at Mount Sion Primary School Hall on Saturday, March 25, and Sunday, March 26, at 8pm, with a 2pm Matinee for the latter date.
There will be another performance at Riverbank Arts Centre in Kildare on April 1.
‘Is This Good Enough’ is a play by Avaes Mohammad about teens from different cliques feeling the pull of a mysterious force.
Playwright and poet Avaes’s work follows themes of identity, multiculturalism and young adulthood in the 21st century.
Waterford Youth Arts are staging the play as part of the National Theatre’s Youth Theatre Festival, Connections. NT Connections is one of the biggest youth theatre festivals in the world.
Helming the production is Curious State head Nicholas Kavanagh, who joined Waterford Youth Drama as a youngster himself in the 1990s. Nicholas was recently named as 2023’s New Artist in Residence at the Theatre Royal.
This is an exciting development for Waterford Youth Arts, which was first established in 1985 and has grown into a fully-fledged organisation where young people can express themselves and find their creative voice.
