Readings: Nine Plays from Five Continents

Free and open to the public. First come, first served. No reservations. 

As part of the 2014 PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature, the Segal Center will showcase play readings by nine of the world’s most respected dramatists. With each writer hailing from a different world region as classified by the United Nations, the International Play Festival generates conversations on art, politics, dreams, war, and philosophy, meant to give American audiences a rich awareness of the greater global dialogue.
