My dream of becoming a global citizen with an ability to travel around the world, learn about various cultures and meet interesting people, becomes a reality with the Ambassador Theater’s production of Trespassing. This season we invite you all to North Africa to experience the mysterious land of contemporary Egypt.This would not be possible without the wisdom, expertise and passion for theater of our late Professor Daniel C. Gerould who left us this year with a huge library of his work and ever lasting friendships with his colleagues and experts in world drama. Thanks to him, we have established a new relationship with Professor Marvin Carlson, Dina Amin and a number of distinguished experts in world theater and drama. We miss Daniel but truly believe that through his continuous writing and work he is always with us.
Our travels would also be not possible if not a very special friendship with the former Ambassador of Egypt, H.E. Sameh H. Shoukry and his generous wife, Mrs. Suzi Shoukry who hosted 44 students from Hoffman Boston Elementary School, part of our Ambassadors of International Culture Program who studied the culture of Ancient Egypt. Thanks to many organizations, such as Syracuse University Press, CUNY, American University, George Washington University and many individuals especially our newest addition to our Artistic Staff, Professor Gail Humphries Mardirosian we are able to continue our travels and discoveries of best works from around the world. The list of our collaborators, experts and true lovers of the art of the theater grows bigger and bigger and we feel fortunate and privileged to meet so many talented writers, artists and experts while carrying out our mission to develop an international cultural dialog and discover an international artistic language that brings us all closer. There is no better way to communicate than through art, and it is essential to our humanity.
Enjoy the show!
