Abilio Estévez at 70

James Clerk Maxwell Building, Waterloo Campus, London

Abilio at 70 is a one day symposium (in-person and online) at King’s College London on Thursday 30 May to celebrate the playwriting career of Cuban writer Abilio Estévez – a career that spans some 30 years from La verdadera culpa de Juan Clemente Zenea (1984) to El gran circo (2023). Abilio will be guest of honour and there will be talks, panels and interventions during the day.

In the evening there will be a rehearsed reading of Abilio’s recent play Las palomas y El General, in a new English translation by Kate Eaton and directed by Sue Dunderdale.
