To celebrate OOTW’s first-ever play written for young audiences, join us before the performance of The Girl who was Cyrano to explore the role of translation in theatre for young people.
How international are our stages for children and young audiences? How does translation in the world of theatre for young people compare to its role in the wider context of young people’s literature? And what particular questions do translators face when translating plays for a younger audience? OOTW member and translator William Gregory chairs this conversation with Peter Glanville, Artistic Director of Polka Theatre; Emma Page, researcher in international children’s literature at Reading University, and Sebastián Gutiérrez, translator of The Girl who was Cyrano.
