Shayma Kamar. A play which compels.
Riff Raff Theatre presents the World Premiere of Natasha O'Brien's latest play Shayma Kamar, following a Syrian woman on her journey as a refugee. It is contemporary, honest and not for the faint-hearted.
Natasha O'Brien is a local playwright whose previous plays include Parity of Pretence staged in the National Opera House and Against All Odds. She has a big interest in issue-based plays. Natasha has worked as an actor and director in TV/FILM and TheaNexttre for 14 years.
Riff Raff Theatre was established in Wexford as a professional fringe theatre company exploring new work and new directions in theatre. The company cut its teeth on the production of original works by director Michael Way at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and is part of the Theatre Workshop here in Wexford.
Cast includes Finbar Delaney, Natasha O'Brien and Lekan Akinyemi with Martina Keane.
