Global Express


Eric Forsythe


 Special Event in Theatre B


TBD (September 8-16), 2-3 evenings per week

Event Date

 September 17

Roles to be Cast

TBD (An Ensemble of 10-12 actors will be chosen from the General Auditions – Cross-cultural and multi-linguistic actors are especially encouraged to audition due to the international scope of the works)


Global Express is a unique opportunity for writers from around the world and performers here at Iowa to meet and work together, and then to present their work live on stage at the University.  As political issues continue to challenge the international social fabric, initiatives like Global Express (now, amazingly, in its fifteenth year!) help us to recognize our common humanity while celebrating our differences.  The Express, part dramatic reading, part solo-turn, part poetry slam, makes stops around the globe, "expressing" our common need for connection, empathy, and delight in each other.  All Aboard!


Works: Will consist of works from writers currently in the International Writers Program at the University of Iowa. Short selections from plays, poems, monologues and other performative works will be performed script-in-hand. 

Holiday Conflicts

Sept. 14-15 – Rosh Hashana
