One World Theatre was born in December 2016 with the dramatic reading of Francis Ya-Chu Cowhing's play - The World of Extreme Happiness, directed by Bian Chao.
Since that time we have also produced:
* Der Chinese by Benjamin Lauterbach
* White Rabbit, Red Rabbit by Nassim Soleimanpour
* Moon Sex Moon by Aaron Weissman
In the Fall of 2017 we presented the Basement Plays - 4 dramatic readings for curious people:
Neva by Guillermo Calderon
The Lion & the Jewel by Wole Soyinke
The Nether by Jennifer Haley
Tall Tall Mountains and Strange Birds by Oda Fiskum (sponsored by Ibsen International & the Norweigen Consulate)
For the Shanghai PRIDE Theatre Festival in June 2017 we proudly presented Collective Rage - A Play in 5 Boops by Jen Sliverman
During the Fall of 2017 we produced the English version of 99 Live Shanghai by Geneviève Flaven and the Climate Change Theatre Action Festival
Spring 2018 - June 15 & 16th we will present Witness - a collection of short performances that explore the painful, subtle, and complex stories of our lives. Witness will feature all original material emerging from OWT's Writer's Collective founded by Kassi Cowles, Artistic Director.
One World Theatre Productions strives to use theatre as a mirror to engage and transform our world. We find fresh or seldom heard voices and provide a forum for the audience to engage with the ideas within the play.
