Brexit Stage Left is a British Academy funded project examining the lack of contemporary European plays on British stages in the run-up to Brexit.
Contemporary European plays in translation are a rarity on British stages. They make up less than 1% of UK theatre productions. This project brings together researchers, theatre professionals and theatre audiences to reflect on the reasons for this absence.
The project included a week-long festival of readings of new European plays at The Yard and a two-day conference at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in January 2019.
