New Dramas: Salty Irina
Nowy Teatr, Warszawa 31 października 2019 godz. 19:00
New dramas is a cycle of staged readings. We will present six plays. All have been written in recent years – or even recent months. They have not had time to age, nor stand the test of time. They deal with current affairs as they happen, including key social tensions, though they often reach these through history or myths.
In October we will present the text Salty Irina by Eve Leigh, a British playwright and theatre artist. This is a specific sort of situation comedy, filled with political engagement and civic passions – while also being a queer love story. Two young women, disturbed by waves of racist violence, decide to go to a festival organised by the far-right. Their story allows us to take a closer look at the tensions in contemporary Europe, its concerns – and hopes.
Following the reading, we will host a discussion with the artists.
