For two years it has been silent as it lost its home and because of the pandemic, but now the Lisbon Players is back on stage with An Englishman Abroad – showing at the Teatro do Bairro until April 16th.
THINGS I KNOW TO BE TRUE by Andrew Bovell
The Lisbon Players!
When thou shalt be disposed to set me light
And place my merit in the eye of scorn,Upon thy side against myself I’ll fight And prove thee virtuous, though thou art forsworn.With mine own weakness being best acquainted,Upon thy part I can set down a story Of faults conceal’d, wherein I am attainted, That thou in losing me shalt win much glory.
Friends of the Players!
Here we join our dear friend Suresh, long time patron of the arts and Lisbon Players, in an exploration into irreverence with various guest speakers! We recommended kicking back with a glass of wine after Sunday dinner for this one!
Lisbon may have had its doors forcibly closed but behind doors the art and culture is rife. This is by far the most comprehensive list of events currently happening now during lockdown!
If you like your art and prefer to enjoy it without the hoards of baying tourists armed with iphones and cameras then now is your time! One of the most beautiful of these is the famed Gulbenkian!
“Actors are able to play any character precisely because they themselves are completely deprived of it.”
“The audience goes to the theater to see the good performance of good plays, and not the play itself: you can read the play.”
