Discover Slovenian Writer Ivan Cankar – First English Translation!
Ivan Cankar, playwright, essayist, poet, and political activist, is regarded as the greatest playwright in the Slovene language and has sometimes been compared to Henrik Ibsen, Franz Kafka, and James Joyce.
This play translation project is a collaborative effort between Presernovo Gledališče Kranj, a professional repertory theatre located in the city of Kranj, Slovenia, and Crane Creations Theatre Company. This project is generously supported by the European Commission and the Slovene Government.
