Global Latin American Voices: Play Submission

Global Voices Theatre is a company looking to widen the scope of plays on UK stages, by supporting international playwrights whose voices are often under-represented on UK stages. We curate evenings of rehearsed readings, showcasing excerpts of plays from around the globe.The Roundhouse in London will present the first Global Latin American Voices, curated by Malu Ansaldo-which will premiere excerpts of plays by Latin American writers in English and in translation, never before staged in the UK.


They are welcoming submissions from Latin American playwrights who are based, or who previously resided, outside of the UK.

This is a paid opportunity and all writers will retain the rights to their work.


  • Global Voices is partnering with the Roundhouse to platform the work of young people; and so at least one of the shorlisted submissions chosen for performance will be by a playwright aged 18-25.
  • Plays can be any length, from any period, and with any number of characters; and must be in, or translated into, English.
  • Bi-lingual or multi-lingual plays are also welcome
  • Works must not have been performed, staged or published in the UK.
  • If you are submitting a play that has been translated and if the play or translation is still under copyright, you must ensure that both the playwright and the translator (or the relevant rights-holders) give their authorisation for the translation to be submitted and to participate.
