our words make worlds

Global Queer Voices


"We need to hear more international work on our stages. And we trust that there are writers all over the world who are already writing really good stuff. What we want is the opportunity to hear it" - William Gregory, Global Voices Theatre associate

Global Voices Theatre works with international playwrights to share their work with UK audiences through new rehearsed readings. With the support of a Language Acts and Worldmaking Small Grant, the company put on 'Global Queer Voices' at the Arcola Theatre on 6 April 2019. 

Curated by William Gregory, the evening featured excerpts of plays never before staged in the UK, by writers from 6 different countries.
