Farouq is one of Draiocht's Home Theatre Ireland Hosts and a member of Foróige since he was 12 years old.
On the 6th of October, a brand new piece of theatre, written by a professional writer, inspired by Farouq's story, will be performed 3 times in his favourite place (his Foróige project in Ongar, where he now volunteers) by a professional actor to an invited audience of his guests.
30 plays will be performed simultaneously, in homes across Dublin 15, on the one night.
Members of the Aisling Irish Centre's Foróige Club in New York were delighted to be invited to the Irish Consulate by Minister for the Diaspora & International Development Ciarán Cannon.
The young people were also warmly welcomed last night by Tánaiste Simon Coveney, and Ireland's Ambassador to the USA Daniel Mulhall.
