ENGLISH-LANGUAGE THEATRE EXTRAVAGANZA! Theatre lovers have much to celebrate this month with two English-language productions being staged at La Riereta. David Mamet’s classic Glengarry Glen

Ross (pictured) is being given a radical re-telling by the 12X12 Theatre Company, with an all-female cast for a story written with all male parts (14th and 15th, 21st and 22nd). Then there’s Playing With

Fire, a contemporary drama set here in Barcelona performed by The English Drama School and written and directed by its founder, Julian Wickham (19th and 20th). Find more details in our online listings.

WIN FREE TICKETS: We have two pairs of tickets to give away to see 12X12’s production of Glengarry Glen Ross, one for each weekend of the run. To have

CULTURE PICKS FOR 2012 The start of another year and 12 untouched months of music, art, dance, theatre and film lie ahead of us. They can be a tad overwhelming, all those culture options, and of course you don’t want to miss out on some hidden gems. So we asked our regular culture writers to give us their picks for 2012. As well as the lovely Björk playing at Primavera Sound, our contributors chose Algerian Ballet at Mercat de les Flors, the DHUB permanent exhibition at the Palau de Pedralbes and the Delacroix exhibition at CaixaForum. Read the full selection online now and look out for related reviews, interviews and previews in upcoming issues. www.barcelona-metropolitan.com/culturepicks THIS MONTH’S GUEST BLOGGER is Julie Sheridan. She’s been writing her ‘guirigirlinbarca’ blog since last June having moved here from her native Scotland in April. So far, her postings have covered themes including saints, personal space issues and the ‘differences’ between expats and immigrants.
