About Drama Around the Globe
The term "drama" applies not only to one specific genre of writing, but also to psycho-social and political aspects of life. Therefore, this website features original plays, articles, interviews, reviews, poems, and stories, which also investigate conditions of humanity throughout the world—hence, the name Drama Around the Globe.
Founded by Henrik Eger in March of 2014—replacing HenrikEger.com—Drama Around the Globe features existing and evolving works. The editor of this site hopes that more people of all ages will develop the courage to create their own projects by getting in touch with both the drama within their own lives and around the world.
Much of the creative and descriptive work on this website is based on research in various fields, going beyond personal impressions and avoiding too many esoteric cul-de-sacs. It is hoped that the materials presented here both inform and challenge—perhaps even entertain—the readers.
The majority of texts on this site have been published in the US and abroad. However, some of the plays, poems, and stories shared here are exclusive to Drama Around the Globe.
And now, curtain up.
