Out of the Wings returns to the Omnibus Theatre for its fifth annual festival of theatre from Spanish and Portuguese-speaking world. Over five nights, we present readings of plays from five different countries, in English translation and in the UK for the first time.
In 2019, our work ranged from cutting-edge Catalan comedy to drama from the golden age of Colombian radio drama; a Cuban cry of celebrity obsession and a Chilean tale of loss, love and loneliness. In 2020 we promise more voices, stories, and surprises from writers across history, geography and genre.
Alongside daytime theatre and translation workshops, evening post-show events, discussion and networking forums, join us to discover the best of Hispanic and Lusophone playwriting in a celebration of international collaboration and theatre in translation.
Born out of a collaboration between its co-founders and the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Spanish Golden Age season, Out of the Wings has been bringing English translations of the theatre the Spanish and Portuguese-speaking worlds to the UK and beyond since 2008.
