Theatre preview: Best Of BE Festival

Each summer, the wonderful BE Festival brings a smorgasbord of cutting-edge European theatre to Birmingham, a genre-spanning pick ’n mix of short performances from across the continent. Ahead of the 2016 edition, this week there’s one more chance to experience some of the highlights from last year’s extravaganza, in Best Of BE Festival.

There are three plays on the bill – #sobrejulieta, a Spanish one-woman take on Romeo And Juliet; The Whistle, an interactive circus show from Ireland; and Quintetto, a sharp Italian comedy about budgetary restraint that scooped the 2015 festival’s first prize. There’ll also be a panel discussion on the EU’s importance to the European arts scene.

Best Of BE Festival is at the Bramall on Thursday May 5. For more information, visit
