7 European playwrights. 1 British playwright. 8 new ideas. 8 new forms.
Brexit Stage Left is a festival of staged readings of provocative cutting-edge plays from across the EU. In a Europe that appears to be falling apart, eight playwrights reflect in radical ways on the challenges we all face together.
From a mockumentary play about the rise of the far right to a medieval comedy considering the consequences of living an internet age, this festival brings you the best of new European drama alongside events considering our relationship to Europe in a post-Brexit world.
Playwrights include: Beniamin M. Bukowski (Poland), Gianina Carbunariu (Romania), Eve Leigh (UK), Maria Milisavljevic (Germany), Aleksa Okanovic (Denmark), Fausto Paravidino (Italy), Frederic Sonntag (France), and Saara Turunen (Finland).
This project is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and by the British Academy, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and Eurodram.
