What are contemporary dramatists in and from the Arab world writing about, and what is the process of moving those plays to English so that a US audience can experience their stories? This conversation will focus on the work of three writers/translators whose work is being introduced to New York, and who are also engaged in facilitating theatrical exchange between the Middle East, the US, and the UK.
