Tuesday, July 30, 2019 - Saturday, August 3, 2019


Out of the Wings presents its fourth annual festival, exploring untapped theatre from the Spanish and Portuguese-speaking world. Over five days, a series of stage readings bring to life new English translations of works by playwrights from five countries, alongside workshops, talks and events, in celebration of theatre in translation.

Last year’s festival featured plays from Cuba, Brazil, Chile, Spain and Peru. From stories about a Quechua-speaking Peruvian mermaid, an absurdist Cuban comedy from one of country’s most celebrated writers, to an extreme version of reality TV from Brazil, Out of the Wings showcases and explores the richness of international theatre.

Out of the Wings is a collective of theatre artists, researchers and producers. Meeting every month to read and discuss new translations. For more information and to get involved see outofthwings.org.
