Short play festival

Three new one-act plays start a three-week run on April 28 at the historic Estrela Hall in Lisbon.

Written by three young writers, two Portuguese and one British, they demonstrate one of the goals of this open group, which is to give opportunities to young actors, writers and directors, as well as always having tried to find the balance between classics, musicals and modern plays.

The plays entitled Box, Birthday (pictured) and Is anything broken? are part of The Lisbon Players’ fifth production for the 2010-2011 season.

Ticket costs are €10 for the general public and €8 for students and associates of The Lisbon Players.

The plays will be on stage Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, at 9.30pm, from April 28 until May 14 and on Sunday, May 8 at 7.30pm.
