Set within the unfolding chaos of the Spanish Civil War, the play offers a kaleidoscope of perspectives – from first hand witness accounts to the horrors inflicted by the military junta on its own people; to the decisions on non-intervention taken by the UK government; to the lament of the Welsh prizefighter, morally drawn to Spain, alongside others, to fight in the International Brigade; to the burden of responsibility on journalists to bear witness and present objective truth.

With its haunting parallels to contemporary conflicts in Syria and in Ukraine, the play reflects on dilemmas of moral support and of arming a friendly ally.

Juxtaposing the political and historical with poetic leaps A Dead Man In Spain creates an evocative theatrical space in which we are asked to consider how and where the boundaries of identities are drawn, and how history is recorded… and forgotten.

I felt very privileged to accept a place at Drama Studio London. All the staff run a thorough and exceptional training. What is unique is the quality of the training. We had the opportunity to work with the most respected names in theatre and tv/film from the very beginning. I would never have developed as an actor if it wasn’t for the honesty, momentum and support at DSL.
