The second edition of the "Mierscher Theaterdeeg" (Mersch theatre days) will take place from Thursday 1 to Sunday 4 June 2023.

At the centre of this second edition are creative and committed women who have an impact on the theatre of today; they are writers, directors and actresses who use their words to deal with current issues.

Luxembourgish writer Nathalie Ronvaux will kick off this second edition with a discourse celebrating theatre at the Centre National de Littérature (CNL) in Mersch on Thursday 1 June 2023 at 19:30. Music and other "surprises" are on the agenda.
