On February 7-8, the Arts Printing House organized the readings of four plays by Quebec playwrights that were directed by three Lithuanian directors and a guest from Montreal.
Lithuanian spectators are almost unfamiliar with the dramaturgy of Canada – only two Canadian plays were staged in the Vilnius Youth Theatre a few years ago: Memoir (Lith. Memuarai) by John Murrell and Thunderstruck or The Song of the Say-Sayer (Lith. Dūda-dūdo daina) by Daniel Danis.
This time, several plays on children and teenage problems have been selected – this kind of repertoire is also rare in Lithuania. Algimantas Pociūnas directed the play Mathew and Stephen (Lith. Matjė ir Fransua) by Jean-Rock Gaudreault, Gintaras Liutkevičius directed the play The Ventriloquist (Lith. Pilvakalbys) by Larry Tremblay, Dalia Jokubauskaitė directed the play Noah's Ark (Lith. Nojos laivas) by Jasmine Dubé, and, finally, Canadian Caroline Binet directed the play Helen's Necklace (Lith. Elenos vėrinys) by Carole Frechette. The plays were translated by Rasa Vasinauskaitė and Akvilė Melkūnaitė.
