What is the Globe Theatre's Playreading Series? Join us for a monthly play-reading series on Zoom curated by local theatre artists Rania Al-Harthi, Erin Goodpipe, and Bongani Musa. This project follows in last year's very popular inaugural series curated by artistic associate and Globe’s Indigenous liaison, Skyler Anderson. The series invites the three lead artists to take a deep dive into plays from a specific perspective and share their discoveries with us.

What can you expect? The play readings are presented on Zoom to welcome actors and audiences from across the country. The readings are followed by an [optional] facilitated talk back for a collective conversation about what makes the play tick.

This page will be updated as new plays are announced.

About the show:

Facts follows the relationship between a Palestinian and an Israeli police officer as they investigate the murder of an American teaching a the West Bank University, and the militant settler accused of the crime. The play is part thrilling murder-mystery and so much more. It offers a 75-minute crash course on the Middle East. Audiences learn about identity, tradition, and habits as we investigate conflict and getting along. Facts is funny, sad, and honest. This powerfully moving play is the perfect selection for our final installment of the play reading series.
