About Out of the Wings

This AHRC-funded project brings the untapped riches of the theatres of Spain and Spanish America to English-speaking theatre professionals – practitioners and researchers alike. The virtual environment we have developed reveals the plays as well as the bodies of knowledge that inform and sustain professional practice within Hispanic cultures. In this way, users are able to access the type of information that will open up the theatre to their interests and purpose.

Users can search through a comprehensive database of Spanish-language plays (either generically under Golden AgeModern Spanish and Spanish American or by key words – genre, type of play, number of characters, theme, etc.) to find the play or plays that are relevant to their own programming or research needs.

The entries of individual plays are contextualised through synopsis, sample translation, production notes, critical responses and performance history, and a final section guides users towards a directory of theatre translators.

If you would like to contribute to the database, please create an account. You can also register with us to join our list of contacts and receive emails which will keep you abreast of our developments and events.
