Royal Court Theatre presents PIIGS (Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece, Spain)

240x160_fitandcropInternational writers join up with their British counterparts to bring their experiences to the Royal Court. What is life really like for those living in today’s austerity. Daily dispatches from Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Spain will invade the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs.

“With unemployment reaching almost 30% in Greece, soup kitchens springing up and immigrants being physically assaulted by Neo-Nazis on a daily basis it seems like the right time to put the lives of those affected by the eurozone crisis centre-stage at the Royal Court. Collaborating with writers from the countries on the frontline of austerity and using a variety of theatrical forms we will bring the PIIGS into the heart of London for a week of tragedy, comedy and rage”
Alexi Kaye Campbell, Playwright
