Reykjavik’s City Theatre has been invited to send its new play to the Wiesbaden International Theatre Festival in Germany.
Borgarleikhusid, one of Reykjavik’s biggest theatres, has been invited to send its new play to the tenth Wiesbaden contemporary theatre festival, which will be held in June. The play is called Godir Islendingar (Good Icelanders), which roughly corresponds to the much-used American Phrase “My Fellow Americans”. The play was premiered about a month ago in Reykjavik.
The Wiesbaden festival is one of the most respected of its type and introduces the best modern drama to an international audience. An average of 30 plays are shown at the festival from countries all over Europe.
All plays are performed in their original language with live German translation. According to RUV, the festival also includes conferences and symposia with playwrights, translators, critics, academics and politicians, among others.
