      Dr. Fatima Shahnaz, Ph. D. Sorbonne University, France, an Indian writer,
      journalist, New York poet, and president of The India Peace Organization, a
      human rights group in New York, is one of the first Asian women-directors on
      the Broadway scene in New York theatre. The following press release announces
      two classic plays she has directed. She is the artistic director of The Globe
      Repertory Company, a theatrical company, in New York. Please circulate this
      press release to your friends, both in India and in the United States. Thnx

      Dr. Fatima Shahnaz, the New York writer, poet journalist as well as
      political activist and human rights activist, has now been appointed
      Director of an Off-Broadway theater in New York. She is one of the first
      Asian directors of the American stage; she is also one of the only women
      directors in the United States.

      Her career in the theater goes back to her earliest education in an English
      school where she was selected to be sent to the highest British schools
      for dramatic arts, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and others.
      However, she preferred to do her Ph.D. in French Literature at the Sorbonne
      University in Paris, where her family were based. It was also in Paris
      that she trained at one of the most prestigious French Institutes of
      Theater, while she studied her Ph.D. She is both an experienced
      Shakespearian actress, with training in the highest French theater. She has
      given many public lectures, and appeared on radio and television. The
      play she is now directing on the New York stage, Morgan Le Fay, a poetic
      drama about the legend of King Arthur of Camelot, has been shown several
      times on Cable television in New York. Before this she directed �Caesar
      and Cleopatra� by George Bernard Shaw, a play that has rarely been done in
      New York by any American director. The next play she will direct will be
      �Murder in the Cathedral,� by the English poet, T.S. Eliot. The story is
      relevant to our modern era, in which Thomas Becket, the Archbishop of
      Canterbury, is assassinated for his faith - the Law of God above the Law of
      State. The schedule for the play showing the week of December 2nd is on
      the announcement.
