NYC World Theatre Day Coalition is excited to present…

The Staged Reading of the First Annual

The Around-the-Globe Chain Play

Wednesday, March 27th at 7:00 PM 

To be performed at The Lark Play Development Center

Starting and ending in NYC, a play is being written as it travels around the world, making 16 stops with playwrights from across the globe. Each playwright is contributing one to five pages of text, moving the plot forward from where the previous playwright left off. The playwrights are Dominique Morisseau (USA, NYC), Bekah Brunstetter (USA, Los Angeles), Van Badham (Australia), Mixkaela Villalon (Philippines), Janice Poon (Hong Kong), Abdelrahem Alawji (Lebanon), Jeton Neziraj (Kosovo), John Freedman (Russia), Ulrike Syha (Germany), Enver Husicic (Netherlands), Zainabu Jallo (Nigeria), Beatriz Cabur (Spain), Sarah Grochala (UK), Sigtryggur Magnason (Iceland), Caridad Svich (USA, NYC) and one TBA.

The reading will be followed by a World Theatre Day Reception where a number of NYC theatre luminaries will read the International Theatre Institute’s World Theatre Day Message that will be written this year by Italian playwright, Dario Fo.
