CASA Rehearsed Reading June
This is the second in the CASA series of Rehearsed Readings of classic Latin American plays in English. "When All Is Said And Done" is one of the most acclaimed plays by renowned Chilean playwright Juan Radrigán.
We're very excited to have Sue Dunderdale directing the piece in translation by Professor Catherine Boyle.
The night will include drinks, snacks, music, the reading and a brief talk about the piece.
A great night out for both lovers of theatre and lovers of Latin American culture.
Tickets are free but need to be reserved in advance.
There will a cash-only bar at the venue.
Looking forward to seeing you there.
