Deeper meaning of life and love

We set out on a journey of Good Love to find a deeper meaning of life, love and human connection.


Enigma Theatre would like to invite you to see Good Love, a play inspired by August Strindberg's seminal work - The Stronger.
Play will take place both in The New Theatre in Dublin and online, streamed through internet to reach audiences at every home in Ireland.

We set out on a journey of Good Love to find a deeper meaning of life, love and human connection. Incorporating stories from our past with our present, our journey is unpredictable, non-linear, absurd yet deeply universal, it gives us a lot of satisfaction and opportunities to grow..

“Your journey is toward the instant, to the moment, toward the unrepeatable encounter before your peers. Your journey is toward them, toward their heart, toward their subjectiveness. You travel within them, in their emotions, their memories that you awake and mobilise. Your journey is vertiginous, and nobody may measure or silence it. Nor may anybody recognise it to the right extent, it is a journey through the imagination of your people, a seed that is sown in the most remote of lands: the civic, ethical and human conscience of your spectators.” Carlos Celdrán
