TypeCast! - 3 Winters by Tena Štivičić - Friday 15/12/23 @6:30pm
We are delighted to announce the next TypeCast!, our play reading group at Typewronger.
All you need is a copy of the play, which you may source yourself or purchase from the shop. We aim to do plays written by living authors to help support their continuing work.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org ahead of time to secure a spot and order a copy of the play if you are interested in attending, as these events tend to be popular, and we sometimes run out of playscripts.
Take a seat on the welcoming stage of this little bookshop as we read aloud 3 Winters by Tena Štivičić. We'll randomly assign parts on the night, and then get reading!
A portrait of an eclectic family, held together by the courage to survive. In an ivy-clad house in Zagreb, Croatia, the Kos family argue and fall in and out of love as world after world is erected and then torn down around them. From the remnants of monarchy, through Communism, then democracy, war, and eventual acceptance into a wider Europe, four generations of Kos women - each one more independent than the last - have to adapt to survive.
The one constant is the house: built by aristocrats, partitioned, nationalised, it stands witness to the passing generations. But when the family assemble for Lucija's wedding, Alisa learns that her nouveau-riche brother-in-law has bought the family home for himself and the other tenants have to move out. For the bride this is progress, for her sister it's a shady act of greed.
For their principled parents, finally, it's one battle too many.
