‘Mirror teeth’ wins an incredibly precise commendation from the European Theatre Convention

Aug 27, 2012 by

Somewhat out of the blue, I’ve received a letter from the European Theatre Convention, who give me the very specific news that my play mirror teeth is

‘one of the 119 best contemporary plays from 41 countries in the last 2 years’.

Every two years, national reading committees, members of the ETC and other partner organisations in each country chose ‘the most remarkable contemporary plays to reflect the tendencies of European drama theatre’; they then publish a catalogue of these plays, to help promote European theatre, and to promote the playwrights themselves. They’ve just launched the 2012 catalogue at the European Theatre Festival ‘New Plays from Europe’ in Wiesbaden, Germany.

It’s a very nice letter to receive, particularly as I’m in the middle of wondering whether new drafts of half a dozen scripts are worth bothering with.

They have a maximum of three playwrights from each country, and only chose two from the UK- Moira Buffini and me.  A very flattering neighbour, indeed.

Have a poke around on their site and, if you feel so inclined, you can even request a paper copy of the catalogue by emailing them.
