We are pleased to invite students from UCSC for a series of short stage plays based on women in times of transition in Sri Lanka, in honor of the International Women’s Day. There will be a discussion soon after the plays are staged, which will be moderated by Ms. Shyamala Gomez, Country Director of FOKUS Women. Below are the details and attached is the flier. The U.S. Embassy is sponsoring the staging of these plays in collaboration with Ms. Kaushalya Fernando, theater artist/actress/director, to facilitate this program especially for university students.
