The Bit-Players

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Southwark Playhouse’s theatre ensemble for 19 to 25 year olds present the English-language premiere of Spanish playwright José Sanchis Sinisterra's classic of post-war European theatre.

Translated from Los Figurantes by William Gregory and adapted with the company

Directed by Pepa Duarte and Sergio Maggiolo

A group of actors - the Bit-Players of the title - decide it's time they got the recognition they’ve always deserved, and the roles they were born to play. But in taking radical action to realise their dreams, they might just discover that there are no small parts, only small actors...

The Bit-Players is a comedy of errors and a political call to arms that resonates with a twenty-first century world in perpetual upheaval and in search of a collective identity.

Performed in English for the first time, this is a unique opportunity to see this absurdist comic masterpiece by one of Spain's most celebrated contemporary playwrights.
