Once Upon A Time In Trieste
Buxton theatre company to perform for senior Slovenian diplomat during Fringe run
Diplomat Miha Fatur from the Slovenian Embassy in London will attend a performance of Once Upon A Time In Trieste, a new play presented by Buxton’s Silver Pine Productions.
The hero of the play, Pinko, an ethnic Slovenian living in the Italian city of Trieste in 1938, is suffering under the Fascist Government’s anti-racial laws. He plans to assassinate Mussolini when the leader makes an official visit to the city.
Silver Pine writer and producer Anna Girolami, who lives in Harpur Hill, said: “I contacted the Embassy with details of our play hoping that it might be of interest to their network of Slovenian community groups around the country. When the Embassy replied and said that Mr Fatur would be coming in person to attend a performance, I was absolutely delighted. The whole team is terrifically excited about his visit - it’s the icing on the cake for our Fringe run.”
Mr Fatur is attending one of the team’s Manchester performances at Hope Aria Academy in Ancoats. Buxton audiences can see the piece at The Green Man Gallery on 14th and 15th July. All details are on Silver Pine’s website and social media pages.
