The Teatre Lliure in the Gràcia district will be reopening its doors on 30 September with “Cat on a hot tin roof” by Tenesse Williams.
The announcement was made by the director of the Lliure, Àlex Rigola, who will be directing the production and embarking on his final season in the post. The play is a co-production with the Centre Dramàtic Nacional and features Muntsa Alcàñiz.
Rigola has explained that the theatre will hold between 200 and 350 people according to the format, and that it will keep the “austere” style of seats without armrests that give the “feeling of sitting on a bench” and the sort of “closeness you would experience if you were in an Agora”.
The second production staged by the Lliure in Gràcia will be Harold Pinter’s “Celebration“, directed by Lluís Pasqual. Another play scheduled to be performed here is “Les dues dones que ballen” by Josep Maria Benet i Jornet, with the season being closed by “Dos“, directed by Eduard Fernández.
The headquarters of the Lliure in Montjuïc, the Fabià Puigserver auditorium, will open the season with “Belmonte“, by Cesc Gelabert and music by Carles Santos. The musician will also be directing “Amarat“, a show on the world of circus.
