Success for 1 day, 1 play #2
The instant playwriting game, proposed by ASSITEJ France with WLPG and the European network LaboO7, was a great success : about 45 plays, written between March 1st and 15th, where published at the occasion of the World Day of Theatre. Professional playwrights and translators from 22 countries took part in this event, just for the fun of it. The imposed theme of this jubilee year for ASSITEJ was « Anniversary ».
A selection of 12 of these short plays was read by students of the theatre course of Nantes, for the public of the festival Petits et Grands .
