PEN World Voices: New Plays from Spain
On the occasion of the 2013 PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature, we welcome seven of Spain’s most respected Spanish dramatists to the Segal Center.
The US-Spain Playwrights Project aims to initiate and foster the development of collaborative relationships between contemporary playwrights from Spanish and American ensemble theater companies based in or around New York City.
Playwrights will travel to New York to preside over readings of their works in English. With artistic director Julian Mesri, these readings offer insight into the evolution of Spanish identity and culture in the context of its current situation. An anthology of the plays in translation will be published by the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center.
Playwrights include Ernesto Caballero, Guillem Clua, Cristina Colmena, Mar Gómez Glez, Borja Ortiz de Gondra, Alfredo Sanzol, and Emilio Williams.
