Written and directed by Djanet Sears

The Department of Drama is proud to welcome Djanet Sears to Stanford, where she will direct her play Harlem Duet, a prelude to Shakespeare's Othello. Winner of Canada's highest literary honor for dramatic writing - the Governor General's Literary Award - in 1998, Harlem Duet was revived in 2006 at the Stratford Festival, North America's largest theater festival, and was the first black work to be produced in the festival's fifty-four year history, the first to be directed by a black director (Sears), and the first with an all-black cast.
$15 general admission, $10 Stanford faculty and staff, $10 senior citizens, $5 students with ID. All seating is general admission. Tickets are available at the door the night of the performance, or online at http://drama.stanford.edu. Please note new ticketing policy: any tickets unclaimed 10 minutes prior to curtain may be released to a waiting list.
