Corinne Jaber will be returning to BU this March to speak about her work producing Shakespeare plays in the Middle East. Her lecture will take place on Tuesday March 19, 5:00 PM in CAS 200, 725 Commonwealth Avenue, at Boston University. The lecture is called “With Shakespeare from Kabul to the Globe,” hosted by the Department of English and the Boston University Humanities Center. This lecture reports on the Dari-language ‘Afghan’ production of Shakespeare’s “The Comedy of Errors” (with the Roy-E-Sabs Theatre Company, Kabul) for the London Globe Theatre’s “Globe to Globe” International Festival in London, May 2012; the production also played in India, Germany and other sites in the UK.

Corinne Jaber’s acting credits include “The Mahabharata,” directed by Peter Brook; Shakespeare’s “Henry VIII,” directed by Gregory Thompson (Royal Shakespeare Company); and “Frozen,” by Bryony Lavery. She was awarded the Molière Prize in 2001 as Best Actress for “Une bête sur la lune.” She has also directed “Sisters” by Fabrice Melquiot in Kabul and Paris.
