Freedom Ltd. is a unique theatre event that is coming soon to the theatrical space of Submarine Bar in Dublin. It’s an effect of very fruitful collaboration between Polish Theatre Ireland and Lithuanian theatre group Alternatyva Alternatyva.
We are going to make a 2-days long marathon of wonderfully written plays from Poland and Lithuania, based on themes of freedom and identity, and draw stories about several different characters trapped by histories of their own countries.
Each play will be presented in English by Polish Theatre Ireland, Alternativa Alternativai and other Dublin-based artists.
The playwrights are all invited and they will come along to Dublin so there will be a chance to talk to them after the readings.
First day of readings will bring dramas written by female playwrights: Julia Holewińska (Poland) and Laima Vince (Lithuania) and second day – male playwrights: Radosław Paczocha (Poland) and Gintaras Grajauskas (Lithuania).
