Corrine Jaber directed Shakespeare's "Love's Labour's Lost" in Afghanistan in 2005 and 2006 - the first Shakespeare play performed in Afghanistan since the Soviet invasion in 1979. In 2012 she directed "The Comedy of Errors" (again in Dari and again with the Roy-E-Sabs Theatre Company) for the Global Theatre's "Globe to Globe" International Festival. In addition to directing, Jaber has acted in "The Mahabharata," "Henry VIII," and "Frozen." She was awarded the Moliere Prize in 2001 as Best Actress for "Une bete sur la lune." Joyce Van Dyke's plays include "Deported / a dream play" (Boston Playwright's Theatre in collaboration with Suffolk University, 2012), "The Oil Thief," and "A Girl's War." She is a Huntington Theatre Playwriting Fellow and MacDowell Colony Fellow, and a lecturer on Shakespeare at Harvard Extension School. The event is free and open to the public.
