We’re delighted THE RETURN, the first ever translation of the award winning play by Sergio Pierattini, has been selected to appear at the beautiful St James Theatre Studio, in the heart of central London, as part of the Studio’s Play Week.

The St James is a newly refurbished state of the art venue, located at 12 Palace Street (off Buckingham Palace Road, 2 minutes from Victoria), London, SW1E 5JA.

Excited by the chance we were offered, we went back to the rehearsal room,  and what an exciting process it has been!
We found some new nuances in the text and also decided to explore it physically, using the transitions between scenes to go deep into each character’s feelings.  The language of the translation has also been tweaked to give even a more accurate sense of the original linguistic landscape.

But let’s not give too much away, you’ll have to come and see it!
Bookings are open so buy your ticket before it’s too late!
