‘Burial’ debuts at New Haven festival

Nottingham Playhouse production premieres

Nottingham Playhouse Theater Company’s production of “The Burial at Thebes,” recently seen at London’s Barbican Center, will have its U.S. preem at New Haven’s International Festival of Arts & Ideas June 14-19.

The work, helmed by Lucy Pitman-Wallace, formerly of the Royal Shakespeare Company, features a new translation of Sophocles’ “Antigone” by Nobel Prize-winning poet Seamus Heaney.

The show, with a stripped-down production, will first bow at the Spoleto Festival May 29-June 2. New Haven gig will be the full production from the Barbican.

Also preeming at the festival will be Fishamble Theater Company’s production of Irish playwright Sebastian Barry’s “The Pride of Parnell Street,” running June 24-28. The show bowed in London last year and also was a hit at the Dublin Theater Festival.

There will also be a play reading series June 21-22 featuring new works from Eastern Europe. Plays include “Death of the Squirrel Man” by Malgorzata Sikorska-Miszczuk of Poland, “Geza-boy” by Janos Hay of Hungary and “For a Barbarian Woman” by Saviana Stanescu of Romania.

All events will be held at Long Wharf Theater in New Haven.
