The NYC Coalition for World Theatre Day is presenting the 2nd Annual Around-The-Globe Chain Play on Thursday, March 27th at 7pm, which features work by 15 international playwrights, including of Lana Nasser from the Netherlands. The event will take place at The Lark Play Development Center.

Starting and ending in NYC, a play will be written as it travels around the world making 15 stops with playwrights from across the globe. Each playwright will contribute the next one to four pages of text, moving the plot forward from where the previous playwright left off.

The reading will be followed by a World Theatre Day Reception where a number of NYC theatre luminaries will read the International Theatre Institute’s World Theatre Day Message that will be written this year by South African playwright, designer, director, and installation-maker, Brett Bailey.
