György Baráthy


György was a story addict from an early age, so he luck­ily ended up at the Uni­ver­sity of Theat­er and Film Arts of Bud­apest. In theatre, he’s been a dram­at­urg, play­wright, and trans­lat­or. Since 2011 he’s worked for HBO Europe (three sea­sons of the Hun­gari­an adapt­a­tion of the glob­al phe­nomen­on drama ‘In Treat­ment’ and one sea­son of When Shall We Kiss) and has developed a still unpro­duced ori­gin­al tv dram­edy for HBO: Ven­eer. His first nov­el takes place in the secret world of the queers in east­ern Europe dur­ing communism.
