Over five nights, we present readings of plays from five different countries, in English translation and in the UK for the first time.
Our 2022 event was a festival of firsts: Venezuela made its debut, we featured our first-ever play written for younger audiences, and we ventured as far back as 15th-century Mallorca. Join us in 2023 for more UK premieres of plays by international writers, crossing borders of decades, continents, cultures, and the 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.
