El día 19, tras la función, habrá un coloquio con todo el equipo creativo de Cartas Vivas en el Cervantes Theatre: Nuria Capdevila, Paula Paz, Elena Sanz y Paula Rodríguez.
The 19th, after the performance, there will be a post-show Q&A with the Creative Team of Cartas Vivas at Cervantes Theatre: Nuria Capdevilla, Paula Paz, Elena Sanz and Paula Rodríguez.
Las cartas entre Elena Fortún y Carmen Laforet cobran vida sobre un escenario. Su escritura, sus ideas, su pensamiento y sus vidas se entrelazan “como las melodías de una pieza musical” en esta propuesta escénica que parte de su epistolario “De corazón y alma” editado por Fundación Banco Santander y que pretende sacar a la luz a dos de las escritoras más relevantes de la literatura española del S.XX.
The letters between Elena Fortún and Carmen Laforet come to life on stage. Their writing, their ideas, their thoughts and their lives intertwine “like the melody of a musical piece” in this stage adaptation of their letters published by Fundación Banco Santander “De Corazón y Alma”, whose purpose is no other than to bring to light the two most important authors in 20th century Spanish Literature.
We continue with our digital series of ‘In Conversation’, in which our Artistic Director Paula Paz will interview some of the most prominent artists and professionals from the theatre scene in Spain.
You’ll be able to watch all the conversations here:

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 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.
