Open photocall: Everything I do

Irish Theatre company 'One Two, One Two'

Based on personal material, Everything I Do, is an intimate and soulful music-driven theatre show featuring original pop songs, written and performed by Zoe Ní Riordáin with direction by Maud Lee.

Photocall will feature Zoe Ní Riordáin with props including her electric guitar and trampoline.

Everything I Do was a box office hit at Dublin Fringe Festival in 2018 and winner of Best Performance.

Featuring a hysterical pop singer, accompanied by her guitar, she riffs on love in a lonely universe. It’s a solo exploration of codependency, rooted in the idea of how we often find it easier to say what we need to say to strangers than to the people we’re closest to.

For further information and images, please contact Clare McCormack on 0044 7989 950871 / [email protected]

Please gather at the main entrance on Castlehill at 745am for a prompt 8am start.
