The Shakespeare is dead Reading clubs host a series of international online playtext reading events. Each month, until the festival starts in February 2022, we read a recently written text with theatre enthusiasts from around the world.

The text we will read tonight was selected for the Eurodram Selection of 2021: Conversation with the rain. A play by Shakespeare Is Dead founder Stijn Devillé. Stijn is an acclaimed Belgian playwright and director of Het nieuwstedelijk, city theatre of Leuven, Hasselt and Genk. The play is translated by Sara Vertongen, actress and theatre maker, who performed in the Dutch and English versions of the play.After the death of their daughter, a couple moves to Singapore.

She starts a demanding job as CEO of a nanotech company. He strolls through the monsoons and seems to see his daughter’s words in the rain.A conversation ensues. A purifying story about love and loss. A story based on a personal experience of award-winning playwright Stijn Devillé, told by two musicians, two actors and a rain printing device.Please be welcome!


You can participate in the event via Zoom.
