If like me, you’re constantly in a state of missing In the Heights, then the British Theatre Academy’s production of Bring It On is just the energetic, humorous, heartfelt fix you need.
How is the deepening crisis in Venezuela affecting theatremakers there? Award-winning playwright Gustavo Ott, who gets his overdue UK debut this month with a new production of 2002 play Your Molotov Kisses, discusses that and how his five years living in London as a young immigrant – working as a theatre usher, meeting Harold Pinter, flat-sharing with ETA separatists – shaped him and his art.
Venezuelan writer Gustavo Ott’s Your Molotov Kisses is relocated to London for its UK premiere at Camden Fringe next month. Director Gianluca Lello tells us what drew him to the piece, why Camden is such an important alternative to Edinburgh come August, and how “people who lie, scheme and delude themselves to get ahead” create such great drama.
