Exploratory readings of plays by three dynamic new voices from Catalonia, Spain.
The primary purpose of this project is to introduce playwrights and their work to audiences and theatre professionals in the international arena and to create interest in producing their plays. We will co-present three discovery readings of three Catalan plays in Vancouver. The plays will also be read in Saskatoon and Montreal and next year three Canadian plays will be read in three Catalan cities.
Key to the goals of the project is to fly the playwrights from their home country to the discovery readings, both for the experience of seeing the play and to create interest in the individual. Each of the communities will employ a professional cast to rehearse the readings. The directors for the readings in Vancouver will include Pi Theatre Artistic Associate Adam Henderson, PTC Dramaturg & Acting Executive Director Heidi Taylor and Tant per Tant Artistic Director Tom Bentley-Fisher. The scripts were translated into English by Elisabet Ràfols with Tom Bentley-Fisher.
The plays include: Girls Shouldn't Play Soccer by Marta Buchaca Buffalos by Pau Miró Far from Nuuk by Pere Riera
Come and meet the playwrights and engage with their unique worldviews.
Catalan Connection is presented free of charge.
November 27: Girls Shouldn’t Play Soccer @ 7 pm. Buffalos @ 9 pm.

The readings will be held at the PTC Studio, 3rd Floor, 1398 Cartwright Street, Granville Island. No reservations are required.
