Theatre Partnership project

The Threatre Partnership project seeks train actors and backstage staff and organise capacity building activities in theatres in Azerbaijan. The project also seeks to bring cutting edge performances from the UK to Azerbaijan.

The Leenane Trilogy, written by Martin McDonaugh, was staged at the Theatre of Young Spectators in March 2014. Directed by Jan Willem van den Bosch, the play was performed by 12 Azerbaijani actors. 

The show is in the repertoire of the theatre in 2015-2016.
