Our community theatre group, Global Girls Theatre Collaborative (GTC), creates and stages original theatre that unpacks, challenges and heals. Adults and youth workshop original plays at our location, The Global Studio, and perform them for audiences in our space and in various venues around Chicago and throughout Illinois. Springing from first person narratives, shows confront timely themes: racial injustice, HIV/STI education, domestic and dating violence, adultism, teen pregnancy, sexual abuse, social media, street harassment and more with content that some find provocative, but community actors believe captures their realities.

GTC members travel and teach others to stage their stories. The exchanges begin with creating a safe space so that girls and women can feel comfortable sharing their stories. In addition to working with their peers stateside, members have traveled to Accra, Ghana; Nairobi and Mombasa, Kenya; Tamil Nadu, India and Grenada, West Indies. The India and Grenada arts exchanges were funded through the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur International Connections program.
