Another chance to hear the 2011 International Playwriting Competition winner: The Navigator by Lasha Bugadze

Another chance to hear the 2011 International Playwriting Competition winner: The Navig.

Rostom is content with his regular office routine, safe on the fifteenth floor.

But when he's made to drive to inspect construction sites - and with a sat nav - his life begins to take a entirely unexpected course.

A comedy about love, redemption and the surprising effects of in-car technology.

Lasha Bugadze from Georgia won the English as a first language category in this year's international playwriting competition, for his dark comedy The Navigator, translated by Maya Kiasashvili.

The judges thought this play was "enchanting," "authentic" and that it cleverly turns the subject of loneliness into "joyous listening."
