Who is the mysterious and enigmatic Cyroe?

On a cold winters night, young people from all over the city converge on the park; the Rudeboys, the Party Girls, the Footballers, the Chess Players, the Skateboarders, the Drug Runners and the Uniformed Schoolkids. Summoned there by Cyroe, no-one one really knows who Cyroe is, or has ever really met him.
All they do know is that when Cyroe calls, you answer . . .

Directed by Nicholas Kavanagh of Curious State, Waterford Youth Arts presents Is this Good Enough? by Avaes Mohammad for NT Connections 2023.

Inspired by the 12th century epic Persian poem The Conference of the Birds, Mohammad’s play Is this Good Enough? is described as a contemporary take on The Conference of the Birds meets ‘70’s cult film classic, The Warriors.
