Global Female Voices and Global Female Arab Voices

web site

Global Female Voices and Global Female Arab Voices will premiere excerpts of new plays in translation and from the wider English-speaking world.

We are welcoming submissions from all female-identifying playwrights that are based (or previously resided) outside of the UK, or who are part of the international community. We are particularly interested in reading submissions from playwrights from Arab countries and the Arab diaspora.

The performances of rehearsed readings will be taking place on the following dates:
- Global Female Voices, Arcola Theatre: Saturday 23rd February 2019
- Global Female Arab Voices, Rich Mix: Saturday 9th March 2019 (part of the Arab Women Artists Now festival)

We are looking for plays from contexts beyond the Western world; exploring issues and settings that audiences might not otherwise see in London theatres.

Playwrights should be based outside of the UK.

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.
