Global Voices Play Submission: Global Queer Voices at Arcola Theatre
Global Voices Theatre is a platform introducing international theatre by often under-represented playwrights in the UK. We curate one-off evenings of rehearsed readings, showcasing excerpts of plays from around the globe. Collaborating with local creatives, Global Voices is a bridge between UK venues, theatre makers and playwrights from around the globe.
Global Queer Voices will premiere excerpts of plays in translation and from the wider English-speaking world. We are welcoming submissions from all LGBT+ identifying playwrights that are based (or previously resided) outside of the UK, or who are part of the international community.
The performances of rehearsed excerpts will be taking place on Saturday 6th April 2019 at the Arcola Theatre.
We are looking for plays from contexts beyond the UK; exploring issues and settings that audiences might not otherwise see in London theatres.
Plays can be any length, from any period, and with any number of characters; and must be in, or translated into, English.
If you are submitting a play that has been translated and if the play or translation is still under copyright, you must ensure that both the playwright and the translator (or the relevant rights-holders) give their authorisation for the translation to be submitted and to participate. This is a paid opportunity, dependent on funding.
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: 12 noon, 14th February 2019
Arcola Queer Collective presents
They, Them, We, Us
Devised by the Company
Directed by Dani Singer
“The first duty of the revolutionary is to survive.”
They, Them, We, Us: A Queerstory is a gutsy celebration of 50 years of Queer Liberation since the Stonewall Uprising â€“ an expansive look backwards and forwards, flowing through 50 years of queerstory in fifty minutes. Devised with white hot joy and rage, our performance is based on individual and collective stories powerfully shared with us by our Queer siblings who were part of the queerstory we are representing.
1-6 Apr, 7pm

1-6 Apr, 8:30pm
“I really want a hero. One who lives in a world of magic. I want to see them on posters and in colouring books because I want to be saved from all this.”
Zemuel has been banished from his village in the Valley of Embers for bringing a monster to life. To return he must find and confront it.
Fred loves Lord of Rings, Lady Gaga and salad. He’s on his first Tinder date and everything’s going fine until his past catches up with him.
Two stories. Two worlds. One quest.

You can see The Quest and They, Them, We, Us for £20 Standard. Add both shows to your basket and we’ll take care of the rest.

Global Queer Voices is created via an international call for playwrights – click here to learn more (deadline for submission: 24th Feb)
The event will be curated by William Gregory.
William Gregory trained in acting in the UK and Spain and began translating plays in 2003. He is the editor and translator of The Oberon Anthology of Contemporary Spanish Plays and his translation of Cuzco by Víctor Sánchez Rodríguez runs at Theatre 503 in Jan-Feb 2019. His translations have also featured at the Royal Court, the Gate, and on BBC Radio.
This event is part of the Arcolas Creative/Disruption 19; festival of productions
celebrating the people and diversity of East London.
Creative/Disruption 19, which features twelve productions alongside special events including readings and club nights, will light up Arcola from 18 February to 07 April 2019. Women’s, LGBTQ, Turkish, youth, 50+ and mental health groups – assembled and supported by Arcola – will stage original devised work and new takes on classic plays.
