The CAPITAL Masterclass - Djanet Sears

Wednesday 28th November, 17:00-18:00, CAPITAL Centre Studio, Millburn House

Djanet Sears, award-winning playwright and CAPITAL Fellow of Creativity, presents a masterclass on her work. Her plays include Afrika Solo, The Adventures of a Black Girl in Search of God and Harlem Duet, receiving numerous awards. She will be talking about the context in which she creates her work, and will be reading selections of her writing.

Sears is a Canadian playwright, actor and director with particular interest in themes of the search for identity, race relations and gender issues. Her work combines classical theatre with modern politics effectively to define the "black experience". Earlier this year she spent two months working with the Royal Shakespeare Company on their production of Margaret Atwood's The Penelopiad. She is the founder of Obsidian Theatre, a company which specialises in African and Caribbean Canadian drama, and is a professor at the University of Toronto
