A new format marks the launch of the second season of British Contemporary Drama workshops and face-to-face encounters with British playwrights which as from this Autumn will be taking place at the Abadía Theatre in Madrid. And to define it we’ve adopted a famous quote that Rafael Azcona shared with David Trueba: "the meaning of life is in having breakfast". So correspondingly the eight British playwrights who will visit Madrid in the framework of this New UK Drama series will share breakfast with the professionals taking part in these workshops. As in the first season the programme will be delivered by Luis Sorolla, Nacho Aldeguer and Carlos Tuñón, and on one Monday a month we’ll be opening the programme up to the general public by organising staged readings of extracts from our invited playwrights’ best plays.
The season kicks off with a focus on the works written by the versatile winner of a prestigious Olivier award Bola Agbaje. Nominated in 2008 by the Evening Standard as the most promising playwright of the year, she is also one of the youngest members of the Royal Society of Literature.
Registration for training sessions is open until September 20.
Staged readings with Bola Agbaje: 21st oct 7.00 PM – Teatro de la Abadía.
