Interview: Director Liz Diamond

Liz Diamond, director of “Father Comes Home from the Wars, Parts 1, 2 and 3” by Suzan-Lori Parks, at ACT’s Geary Theatre April 25-May 20, 2018, and the head of Yale Drama School’s Directing Department, in conversation with Richard Wolinsky.

Liz Diamond’s love affair with theatre began when she was in the Peace Corps in Africa, and took off after she teamed with playwright Suzan Lori-Parks, working on plays in New York. Eventually she found herself at Yale, where she began to teach, eventually becoming the Chair of the Directing Department at Yale School of Theatre. She returns to directing with the latest Suzan-Lori Parks play, an epic about African-American slaves during the Civil War.
