What a November it has been here in Gibraltar! Once again, we were treated to so many interesting and varied sights in and around Gibraltar that it has proved to be a bit of a challenge to fit it all into one coherent article, long may that continue!
As Gibraltar Literature Week enters its third day of events, local playwright Julian Felice reflects on the Rock’s long tradition of play-writing…

Gibraltar Literature Week kicked off on Monday and comprises of a varied programme of activities aimed at raising the profile of local writing and drawing attention to the work of Gibraltarian writers. A (hopefully temporary) alternative to the Gibraltar Literary Festival, the event is providing a valuable platform to a burgeoning local literature that only a few weeks ago found its existence having to be defended on social media and on the correspondence pages of our daily newspapers. With a pop-up bookshop – hurrah! – selling books by local writers, this is a big week for our literary figures as we promote our work in schools, in lectures and interviews, and online. As part of this, I have thought it appropriate to cast an eye on Gibraltarian play-writing and contemplate where we stand in this particular branch of writing.
