7:30pm Reading

FREE + Open to public. First come, first served.

Join us as we celebrate The Segal Center’s newest publication, Four Millennial Plays from Belgium. The evening will feature readings from the plays and a panel discussion with Belgian playwrights Serge Goriely, Pascal Vrebos, and editor/translator and specialist in Belgian theatre, David Willinger (Professor of Theatre at City College and the CUNY Graduate Center’s Ph.D. Program), moderated by Frank Hentschker.

This anthology captures tendencies of contemporary European playwriting in the beginning of the new millennium — focusing on race, inter-continental marriage, the privileges allowed society’s leaders, the resurgence of the Extreme Right, and creative ways of juggling love relationships — presented in a variety of accessible styles.

Willinger and others will direct four exemplary scenes from the anthology.
