Out of the Wings (OOTW) presents its sixth annual festival of theatre from Iberia and Latin America. From 19 to 23 July, hosted by Omnibus Theatre, Clapham, a series of staged readings brings to life works by six playwrights in new English translations and in the UK for the first time, alongside workshops, talks and other events.
From 15th-Century Mallorca to 21st-Century cyberspace, #OOTW2022 spans time and space like never before. OOTW’s sixth festival – its third at Omnibus – unites playwrights across oceans, centuries and generations, exploring themes of identity, gender, borders and the search for connection, autonomy and home, through comedy, poetry and drama.
Born out of a collaboration between its co-founders and the Royal Shakespeare Company’s acclaimed Spanish Golden Age season, OOTW has been bringing English translations of theatre from Ibero-America to the UK and beyond since 2008.
