Talk sessions, translation workshops, readings, and symposiums by leading drama translators held once a month for three consecutive months from October 2021. The playwrights dealt with in each session were Simon Stephens, Tennessee Williams, and Tom Stoppard. Participants conveyed the appeal of theater and swapped ideas and opinions on practices in discussions that included what sort of undertaking drama translation is, why we make new translations of the classics, and the pleasures of translating drama.
