New Plays from Georgia and Ukraine

Four playwrights from Georgia and Ukraine will have their plays performed as rehearsed readings, translated into English, as part of an ongoing project with a group of 12 writers that the Royal Court has been working with since May 2011. After the final reading on Saturday 16 March, there will be panel discussion with the playwrights on the challenges of writing new plays in contemporary Georgia and Ukraine, chaired by Royal Court Literary Manager Chris Campbell.

Associate Directors Elyse Dodgson and Simon Godwin, International Associate Caroline Steinbeis, director Ramin Gray and playwrights April De Angelis, Rory Mullarkey and Nick Payne travelled to Tbilisi, Lviv and Kyiv to work with writers to develop new plays about contemporary life in their countries, bringing together artists working in Georgian, Russian and Ukrainian.
