ITALIAN PLAYWRIGHTS PROJECT

After the success of the first edition of the Italian Playwrights Project (IPP, 2015/16) and a special evening dedicated to the work of Stefano Massini last year, once again Valeria Orani, Director of Umanism NY, with Frank Hentschker, Director of the Segal Center (Graduate Center – CUNY) will collaborate to present to the American audience a selection of the most rappresentative Iitalian dramaturgy.

The initiative will bring some of the brightest, innovative, and most engaging playwrights from Italy to New York to develop their pieces through translation into English and public readings of the work. The Italian Playwrights Project plays an important role in introducing contemporary writing from Italy to the US. The project restarted an artistic dialogue between the two countries which has been sporadic over the last 30 years. For the first time US playwrights will also be presented in Rome, Italy on December 14th, 2017.

The final selection of the Italian playwrights by the American Advisory Board on the Italian Advisory Board suggestion for the new edition is:

L'ORIZZONTE DEGLI EVENTI (The Horizon of the Events) by Elisa Casseri

MIO EROE (My Hero) by Giuliana Musso

UN QUADERNO PER INVERNO (A Notebook for the Winter) by Armando Pirozzi

LA GRANDE PASSEGGIATA (The long Walk) by Fabrizio Sinisi
