OUT OF THE WINGS FESTIVAL 2022

PRESENTED BY OUT OF THE WINGS
Out of the Wings returns to the Omnibus for its annual festival of theatre from the Spanish and Portuguese-speaking worlds.

Out of the Wings (OOTW) returns to the Omnibus Theatre for its sixth annual festival of theatre from Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking worlds. Over five nights, we present readings of plays from five different countries, in English translation and in the UK for the first time.

After a year spent on screens, OOTW’s 2021 festival brought plays from Argentina, Mexico, Chile, Spain, Brazil and Peru to in-person life, in a joyous return to our annual flagship event and a happy reunion with the Omnibus. Reinvigorated, join us in 2022 for more plays, by writers traversing decades, kilometres, and borders of geography, culture and imagination.

Alongside workshops, encounters with writers and translators, our festival book-sale, and an opportunity to meet the OOTW team informally, discover with us the best of Hispanic and Lusophone playwriting, in a celebration of international collaboration and theatre in translation.
