Theater Emory’s 2014-2015 season exploring “Global Perspectives” continues this month with “Global Voices: Spring Staged Readings,” January 27 – February 21 in the Theater Lab of the Schwartz Center for Performing Arts.
“Global Voices,” a series of staged readings from thirteen culturally diverse playwrights, continues Theater Emory’s yearlong celebration of the exciting work of different writers and their approaches to creating culturally-charged theater.
“These are playwrights who have ripped open topics of social significance and are demanding we give them fresh attention,” says Janice Akers, artistic director of Theater Emory. “This work is provocative, fresh, and certainly not landing softly in the theater community. These plays are literally upending notions of culture, race, religion, family, and even history.”
