Global Queer Plays

by Danish Sheikh, Jeton Neziraj, Amahl Khouri, Jean-Luc Lagarce, Zhan Jie, Mariam Bazeed, Santiago Loza

A unique anthology bringing together stories of queer life from international playwrights, these seven plays showcase the dazzling multiplicity of queer narratives across the globe: the absurd, the challenging, and the joyful.

From the legacy of colonialism in India to the farcical bureaucracy of marriage law in Kosovo; from a school counsellor in Taiwan coming out as HIV+, to coming of age in an Israel-Palestine coexistence camp, this is a genre-spanning collection of global writing.

Originally selected and performed as part of the Arcola Queer Collective’s Global Queer Plays call-out event.
