The DRAMAT 2015 Spring Ex

October, 1970: When Armenian American college student Ani brings home her Turkish boyfriend Taner, an argument about history turns into a family crisis as Ani’s grandmother suffers a heart attack and must be hospitalized. Taner visits the old woman in the hospital to make peace with the family and to win back the girl he loves. His unexpected friendship with a genocide survivor transports him into the past, into the lost world of Diyarbakir, in a journey towards truth, reconciliation, and the revelation of a family secret that has been buried for years upon years.

Ermeni will receive its world premiere production as the 2015 DRAMAT Spring Ex at the Yale Repertory Theater. Buy your tickets at this link:

Ermeni depicts a rape scene and some instances of violence. We understand that this subject matter can be upsetting for those who have experienced sexual violence themselves or in the lives of people they love. There are a lot of resources for support at Yale, including the SHARE center. SHARE is a confidential, 24-hour hotline (432-2000) that offers information, advocacy, and support for people dealing with sexual violence, sexual harassment, and other forms of sexual misconduct.

Please join us for a panel discussion on the centenary of the Armenian genocide, co-sponsored by the Yale Dramat and the Genocide Studies Program, featuring Prof. Jay Winter from Yale, Prof. Fatma Gocek from the University of Michigan, and Meline Toumani, author of There Was and There Was Not, in the Yale Rep lounge on March 28 at 5 pm. The panel is free of charge, and no tickets are required.
