Plays by Lluïsa Cunillé

The Meeting (translated from the Catalan La cita)
Translated by John London.

A man engages in five separate dialogues in five different scenes. Each person
seems to constitute a random encounter with him, but then emotional and business connections emerge. A final scene is the climax to a wide-ranging metaphysical
search. This is a mysterious, beautifully structured play, with imaginative
verbal experiments.

Set: 5 different settings with scope for suggesting atmospheres ranging from a
park to a subway station.

Cast: 2 women; 4 men.

Productions: Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh, Scotland (1999); broadcast on BBC Radio 3, 17 October 1999.

Published in Lluïsa Cunillé and David Greig, The Meeting and The Speculator
(London: Methuen, 1999).

The Female Witness (translated from the Catalan)
Translated by John London.

A short text written for solo dance performance, although consisting of separate
stories or situations under the heading of each of the five senses. This is
inventive writing which invites a variety of performances.

Production: Venice (1999); Holland (1999).
