A fiesta of new Spanish-language theatre in London
Fancy seeing some of the boldest new Spanish-language drama out there? 'FeSTeLón' (aka the Festival of Spanish Theatre in London) is here to help - and this year, its line-up is bigger than ever.
Taking over CityLit's John Lyon's Theatre, this year's programme kicks off with 'Malvados de Oro' (Monday 11th-Wednesday 13th June) a solo version of a Spanish Golden Age classic. The bustling line-up also includes a bawdy feminist riff on two early 20th century Spanish dramatists' work, ‘Me Siento Pulga’ (Thursday 21st-Sunday 24th June). And for the first time, there's work for kids too: bring the sprogs to wooden puppet show 'Guyi Guyi' (Saturday 23rd-Sunday 24th). Plays are staged in Spanish, with English surtitles.

Fantastic Spanish plays in central London. I saw last night “me siento pulga” amazing play, amazing actresses. I fully recommend it.
If you love theatre, do not miss the opportunity to see ‘Malvados de Oro’ with the great actor Daniel Albaladejo who has flown from Spain specially for the Festival of Spanish Theatre. Do not be put off by the fact that it is in Spanish. It’s a short play, full of passion and very good English surtitles
Festelon's premier on Monday with "Malvados de oro" was absolutely recommendable! Amazing monologue performance, engaging, interesting and English subtitles were great too. Not too be missed.
