Online Dramatised Reading
by Alfredo Sanzol
Translated by Simon Breden
Tenderness is a comedy about deserted islands, shipwrecks, dreamy queens and fearful woodcutters, magic, impossible situations, unleashed passions, irrational hatreds, incendiary wishes, surprising twists and a desire that unites everyone: the desire to find Tenderness anywhere, anyhow and with anyone.

JOE STRUMMER TAKES A WALK
by Juan Alberto Salvatierra
Translated by L. Finch
Directed by Jorge de Juan
In 1985, Joe Strummer was in Granada and decided, together with Jesús Arias, with a pick and a shovel, to unearth the corpse of Federico García Lorca. The punk star unearthing García Lorca… Joe Strummer takes a walk is the result of that emotion and that need to know a fantastic story.
En 1985, Joe Strummer está en Granada y decide, junto a Jesús Arias, con un pico y una pala, desenterrar el cadáver de Federico García Lorca. La estrella del punk desenterrando a García Lorca… El paseo de Joe Strummer, es el resultado de esa emoción y de esa necesidad por conocer una historia fantástica.

Direct Your Future
DIRECT YOUR FUTURE
Support programme for young directors
The Cervantes Theatre has launched its first development programme for young directors called Direct Your Future. After a selection process, we are happy to introduce you to the 6 emerging directors that will have the opportunity to develop their craft with this scheme. We are offering them a paid week of rehearsals at the theatre with actors so that they can explore their proposed project and a mentorship scheme to support them along the way.
“We can not afford to lose our youngest generation of artists. The future may seem dark and uncertain for many of them but we are here to offer our support and guidance, giving them voice and space within an international creative context and telling them that they are valued and needed”
Paula Paz, cofounder and Associate Artistic Director of the Cervantes Theatre.

SUPPORT OUR PRODUCTIONS
– THE FRIENDS SCHEME
The Cervantes Theatre runs a friends scheme that enables people to support the charity to continue providing top quality theatre. Productions in off-west end theatres in London cannot be put on solely through ticket sales (prices would have to roughly double for this to be the case) and so every play requires money to be found from elsewhere. We are deeply grateful to our main corporate and institutional sponsors, whose logos with links to their websites are on the bottom of every page of this website together with Arts Council England for their support

OUR JOURNEY TO OPENING THE CERVANTES THEATRE
Watch this video to find out more.
The Cervantes Theatre stages numerous Spanish language plays throughout the year from both Spanish and Latin American playwrights. The productions are performed in Spanish on Monday-Tuesday, and in English Wednesday-Saturday. Our weekly Tuesday matinees are ideal for school groups wishing to visit our 88 seat venue.
All schools who wish to be involved with the programme will be provided with our educational pack a few weeks before the trip, which includes information on our current production and interactive workshops which can be carried out in class either before or after seeing the play.
Visits also include a pre or post-show talk with a member of the creative team, who will talk about the creative process and discuss issues surrounding the play.
