Zoe Ní Riordáin directs the Irish premiere of Enjoy by internationally acclaimed Japanese playwright Toshiki Okada as part of the Rough Magic Theatre Company SEEDS Showcase.

Theatre director and musician Zoe Ní Riordáin approaches Okada’s hyper-colloquial script with her distinct style. Through this experimental play looks at the possibilities of interpretation and the idea of authenticity.

Rough Magic SEEDS programme is a two-year development programme for emerging theatre artists.
