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
