On June 1, four plays written by Ukrainians during the current war will be read in the Samuel Beckett Theatre in Trinity College Dublin.
The Worldwide Ukrainian Play Readings Project invites theatres around the world to show solidarity with Ukraine by putting on readings of plays by Ukrainian playwrights, many of them written in the 14 weeks since the beginning of the Russian invasion.
The event is free, with attendees encouraged to donate to funds such as Come Back Alive, Ukrainian Women Veteran Movement, Razom for Ukraine and the Red Cross Ukraine Appeal.
The plays to be read out on the night include Survivor’s Syndrome by Andriy Bondarenko, Give me a Taste of the Sun by Oleksandr Viter, Call things by their name by Tetyana Kytsenko and Liudmyla Tymoshenko’s My Tara.
