In 2015, the British Council Ukraine, in cooperation with the Ivan Franko National Academic Drama Theatre, is initiating a production of a work by one of three major contemporary British playwrights. By year’s end, the Franko’s small stage will see a performance of one of the following plays:
- Knives in Hens, by David Harrower
- Lungs, by Duncan Macmillan
- Far Away, by Caryl Churchill
The performance will be led by an emerging Ukrainian director (open to directors age 37 and younger) who is to be chosen in open competition by an expert panel of prominent cultural activists and personalities from the Ukrainian stage.
