Arcola Theatre’s Global Queer Plays Include Two by Arab Women

Arcola Theatre in London put out a global call for queer plays that resulted, they say, in more than 100 scripts submitted:
This March, they’ll present seven of these plays, four of which were translated. Find out more at the Arcola Theatre website. Peace Camp Org by Mariam Bazeed (USA)

No Matter Where I Go by Amahl Khouri (Jordan)

Theory’s great if you’re into that sort of thing. The two by Arab women are Jordanian playwright Amahl Khouri’s   No Matter Where I Go,   to be staged on Saturday March 3 at 5 p.m., and   Peace Camp Org,   by Egyptian-American playwright Mariam Bazeed, set to be staged on Sunday March 4 at 5 p.m. But when these queer women step outside the safety of a seminar room, real life hits them all too quickly.
