Global queer plays
Arcola Theatre
Paperback / softback
Oberon Modern Playwrights
UK Publication Date

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.

55 Shades of Gay by Jeton Neziraj, translated by Alexandra Channer (Kosovo)

Peace Camp Org by Mariam Bazeed (Egypt)
