Plays about war wanted for anthology

09 Jun 2010

Work invited from writers living and working in conflict zones

In Place of War are inviting submissions for an anthology of plays related to war and conflict zones from across the globe.

To be considered for inclusion in the anthology, works should focus on responses to conflict, historical memory, displacement, experiences of refugees and asylum seekers, conflict resolution, peace, transitional justice and reconciliation. The plays should be from the conflict zones themselves, by people living and working in those regions.

The plays will be considered by a panel of leading theatre practitioners, directors and academics for inclusion in an anthology of war plays to be published in 2011/12.

Plays will be accepted in any language, however, for those unavailable in English a short synopsis in English would be appreciated.

Please email plays to:
