Sepideh Khosrowjah

Sepideh Khosrowjah left Iran when she was seventeen. She is one of the co-founders of Darvag, an Iranian/American theatre group in Berkeley, established in 1985. Sepideh has worked with Darvag as a playwright, actor, and director. She has written a number of plays including; If You Leave I'll be Lonely, Who Is Going to Give Us Another Chance, Morgheh Sahar, and The Beginning of Cold Season. Her play, In Memory of Kazem Ashtari, was last performed in the 19th International Iranian Women's Studies Foundation (IWSF) conference in Berkeley in 2008. In 2007, a collection of her plays was published in Iran by Nila Publications. Sepideh's writings have a definite emphasis on woman's issues. In 2008, as a reflection or reaction to ever increasing memoirs of Iranian women living outside of Iran, she wrote the English language play, It's not about pomegranate!.
