New Romanian Plays


Edited By Andrei Marinescu

«The translations in this volume give theatre companies in Ireland and elsewhere access to some of the most exciting new writing for the stage happening in Romania. May the productions follow!»

(Karen Fricker, Founding editor-in-chief, Irish Theatre Magazine)

«Four of the most promising Romanian playwrights, young and very young, are in this collection, each one with a specific way of seeing the Romanian reality, each one with a style of communicating an articulated artistic vision of the society we are living in.»

(Ion Caramitru, General Director of the Romanian National Theatre Bucharest)

«Theatre needs to be fed through the root by the imagination and unorthodoxy of each new and emerging generation of playwrights.»
