Two Tuesdays a month you can sit on the floor of the São Bento da Vitória Monastery (Mosteiro São Bento da Vitória) on comfy pillows and blankets for the ‘Leituras no Mosteiro’, reading sessions organised by stage director and actor Nuno M Cardoso. They’re spontaneous play readings: each participant gets a script and a character. Each month the texts are dedicated to a different country. On the first Tuesday, the text is usually a literary classic and on the second it’s a more contemporary work. After the reading, a guest speaker talks about the play, and people discuss it. Read a new play, make new friends.
