Italian Theatre Festival 2020
(This is a past event and is no longer running)
It is with great sadness that we have to announce that The Coronet Theatre will be closed until the Autumn season. The Coronet hopes to reschedule as much of this outstanding work as possible – more information to follow as soon as possible. Please see here for the most up to date information. Please consider making a donation or joining as a member to enjoy the theatre when we are open once more.
The hugely successful Italian Theatre Festival returns for the third year with three days of thought provoking and entertaining theatre from some of Italy’s most admired writers and performers.
Giovanni Grasso tells the story of the founding of the Italian People’s Party in a tale set in Brooklyn; Guidarello Pontani, Alessandra Vanzi and Marco Solari dramatize the life and texts of critic, satirical poet, writer and translator Giuseppe Marco Antonio Baretti; Elio Germano and Chiara Lagani evoke the spectre of a return to extremism in La Mia Battglia; and Sandro Veronesi and Valeria Solarino present a dramatic reading of Veronesi’s latest novel, Il Colibri.
