Talks and Readings /


Presented in association with the Stewart Parker Trust, this panel discussion will address and review contemporary Irish playwrights in translation.
Writers and translators will discuss the subtle challenges of bringing plays to the stage in other languages, while keeping meaning, metaphor and humour intact.
Panellists will include Joanna Derkaczew (who has translated work by Pan Pan Theatre, Deirdre Kinahan, Amy Conroy, Tom Murphy), Eugene O’Brien (whose own play Eden opened in a new translation in Bucharest in June this year) and Christine Madden (writer, translator, dramaturg), and the panel will be chaired by Tanya Dean.
