Requiem for a Friday Night by Gérman Rozenmacher Rehearsed Reading
Requiem for a Friday Night (Requiem para un viernes a la noche) is a heart-breaking auto-biographical play about a father-son relationship that self-destructs within the context of a family trying to maintain their post-Holocaust Jewish identity in 1970s Buenos Aires.

Moving, tender and nostalgic, it could be described as an Argentine cross between Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie and John Osbourne's The Entertainer. Written by Gérman Rozenmacher in Argentina in 1967, it continues to be produced regularly across Latin America but has never been performed in this country.

This is a reading of a first draft translation by Daniel Goldman with a view to development towards a full production.

We'll also have a Post-reading conversation with Daniel Goldman and Professor Catherine Boyle.

And to keep the tradition going we'll have music, drinks and much more to enjoy the Latin American theatre experience!

As always, tickets are free but must be reserved in advance.

We're looking forward to seeing you there.
