Welcome to Stellar Quines

We are an intersectional feminist theatre company for Scotland, dedicated to exploring the role theatre has to play in creating gender justice for all. Our work is fuelled by artists, audiences and communities who want to see a better future for women, non-binary people and people of other marginalised genders and we work to create opportunities for them to flourish through theatre productions, engagement programmes, practitioner development and campaign work.

The Gaza Monologues

“I dream of having ONE day of safety… When can we live in peace like the rest of the World?” 

– Mahmud Abu Sha’ban (born 1996) 2014 

In response to Ashtar’s Theatre’s call out for a Global Reading, Stellar Quines and Disaster Plan presented a rehearsed reading of The Gaza Monologues at the Lyceum Theatre. 

The Gaza Monologues are testimonies written by Ashtar Youth in 2010 following their survival of extreme violence on the Gaza Strip. In this solidarity event we brought together Scottish, Palestinian, Jewish and Arabic voices to give life to these stories and call for justice, equality and freedom. 

The reading took place in the Wyndham Bar at the Lyceum Theatre. Donations were taken for Ashtar Theatre and for Medical Aid for Palestine (MAP).

Please read our solidarity statement.
