My name is Shara Feit, and I am a playwright, actor, coffee-lover, essayist, and aspiring Yiddishist.

This summer will be an adventure in multiple cities and continents, in playwriting, in the Yiddish language, in feminist theory and thought, in international theatre practice, and in all the books I read along the way. I will be studying Yiddish, developing and producing my plays, and researching gender parity activism in the theatre sector in London and Dublin. My sincerest thanks to the Office of Undergraduate Research and the Alumnae of Northwestern University for making this summer possible. Needless to say, I’m thrilled to be doing all of this and thrilled to tell you all about it.
