Every year we invite a group of young writers from different countries to work during l’Obrador d’estiu with an experienced playwright. This year, for the first time this playwright is Ella Hickson, who has proposed to work on the subject Love, marriage and other minor issues. From this topic, authors have written short plays that, translated into Catalan, will be presented to the public in the form of staged readings.
