A platform for stories unheard:

Global Voices is a theatre project working with international playwrights to showcase plays in translation and from the wider English-speaking world through rehearsed reading events.

Following a worldwide call-out, Global Arab Female Voices in partnership with AWAN will showcase excerpts of up to 5 plays from Arab writers around the globe. Curated by Taghrid Choucair-Vizoso, producer of Shubbak Festival and director of At Home in Gaza and London, the event will also include a post-performance discussion about the plays featured, and the common themes unearthed.

Come and discover five excerpts of plays never before staged in the UK:

– The Manual of Little Wars by Chrystèle Khodr (Lebanon) translated by Katharine Halls, directed by Sara Aniqa Malik

– Ordinary People by Zainab Magdy (Egypt) translated by Zainab Magdy & Katharine Halls, directed by Diyan Zora

– Noura by Heather Raffo (IUSA-Iraq) directed by Layla Madanat

At a time when it is increasingly radical to be international, Global Voices aims to support emerging playwrights whose points of view might otherwise not be represented; to bring audiences knowledge of worlds they may never have had the opportunity to engage with and to be a forum for open discussion about current issues and the role of the arts within global debate. Come and join the adventure!
