Rehearsed readings of two new groundbreaking Chilean plays in translation.

 

15.30-14.30

Medusa, by Ximena Carrera, translated by Catherine Boyle, with Cristóbal Pizarro

Directed by Cristóbal Pizarro (Interdram)

 

In Medusa three women, who have been captured and imprisoned as left-wing insurgents and broken under torture, live a weekend of crisis as their lives as informers for the Pinochet regime force them into personal and moral dilemmas with which they find it increasingly difficult to live.

 

17.00-18.00

 

Super Heroes, by Alexis Moreno Muñoz, translated by Catherine Boyle and Alejandro Franco

 

Directed by Alejandro Franco (founder and director of Theatre Manifest Company), Super Heroes tells the story of a group of alienated public servants who work in an office located in any city hall, in which violence, nostalgic, failure and friendship are the basis of an absurd life where the definition of what is evil and justice does not matter anymore. However, these public servants were once Super Heroes, and it’s time for them to be Super Heroes again.

 

Tickets for both readings are £10, and there is a special offer of a combined readings and Mad Man Sad Woman ticket for £20. Visit space.org.uk to book.
