Theatre Collaboration: Cooking with Elisa


This is an Argentinian text, translated into English and winner of Proyecto 34°S Theatre in Translation initiative in 2011.  It will be rehearsed and staged in Joburg, with a local cast directed by Princess Zinzi Mhlongo.  The production will firstly be on at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown in early July, before doing a two week run at Auto & General Theatre on the Square from 22 July to the beginning of August. As far as we have been able to ascertain, this will be the first time that a contemporary Argentinian woman playwright will be staged in South Africa, and possibly Africa, and the playwright, Lucía Laragione, will attend the premiére.
