From the blog
Welcome from Teresa Ariosto
Theatre Café began life in 2004 with readings of 12 plays from across Europe at the Arcola Theatre, London. In the ensuing 10 years, Theatre Café has become an influential movement for the translation and distribution of new plays for and about young people in the UK and beyond.
Q&A with Tiago Rodrigues: Europe as a story of ideas and thought
George Steiner says that Europe will exist as long as cafes exist, meeting places where people can talk, argue, disagree, gather, start collective movements and have a drink. My Europe is full of cafes.
Q&A with Ingmar Villqist: Europe as a place to explore
Paraphrasing the words of the character from Kartoteka by Tadeusz Rozewicz – “We in Europe… without Europe… under Europe… behind Europe… Oh, Europe!”
White EmbersSaviana Stanescu
Shari is holding Vicky at gunpoint in her apartment. Meanwhile, Alex and Leslie are flying to Bechnya (a fictional, impoverished land) to adopt a child and bring her home. The stories interlink in a dark yet funny tale of poverty and lonely, unloved children.
Heading For High GroundMartin Baltscheit
A family of wolves are struggling to survive in the cold woods. A pair of sheep who can’t conceive are suddenly confronted with a baby wolf, which the ewe is keen to adopt as their own.
