2019

In 2019, venues were as scarce as hen’s teeth. Despite this, in July, we performed a triple bill called Jagged: a short play by Harold Pinter and two short and shocking pieces by Neil LaBute. In September we did a test-read of a new play set in the Algarve called In a Foreign Country and then took part in the 5th edition of the Lisbon REVERSO festival. In November we put on Insomnia, a poetic tale of three Russian writers. We closed out the year with our first podcasts.

2018

In 2018, we focused on Staged Readings and workshops. Workshops are an opportunity for experienced and aspiring actors to exercise and hone their craft… as well as an opportunity for Já to meet new talent.

JÁ Staged Readings give actors and audience the opportunity to plunge into exciting scripts stripped to their central core – very few props, little costume, minimal set, just words and gestures. A chance too for directors to workshop a pet project, and for writers to see their plays free of the stress of an impending full production…
