Reading club with Noemi Rodríguez - Centro Dramático Nacional

Reading club with Noemi Rodríguez

For our #Dramático audiences


This reading group, led by Noemí Rodríguez, will meet throughout the 23-24 season and bring us closer to the creation of some of the season’s authors and authors at #Dramático. Works other than those that will be seen on our stages will be read in order to learn more about the careers of the creators, and thus better understand the evolution of their writing.

The sessions will take place one Monday a month between November 2022 and April 2023, from 18:00 to 20:00.
