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.

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.

According to organizers:

No Matter Where I Go by Amahl Khouri (Jordan)

Theory's great if you're into that sort of thing. But when these queer women step outside the safety of a seminar room, real life hits them all too quickly.

Peace Camp Org by Mariam Bazeed (USA)

A happy-clappy peace camp in the US should be the perfect escape when your Egyptian family's freaking out about your private life. Right?
