The Yale Center for British Art and Yale School of Drama/Yale Repertory Theatre are pleased to present “A Conversation with Liev Schreiber,” at the University Theatre, 222 York Street, on September 11 at 8 p.m.

Schreiber received his training at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London and Yale School of Drama (‘92, MFA). An accomplished Shakespearean actor, his most recent stage appearance was the title role in “Macbeth” earlier this year in New York’s Shakespeare in the Park. Other performances in works by Shakespeare include the title roles in “Henry V” and “Hamlet,” Iago in “Othello,” Banquo in “Macbeth,” Sebastian in “The Tempest” and both Jupiter and Iachimo in “Cymbeline” (for which he received the Obie Award). On film, he portrayed Laertes in a modern-day version of “Hamlet.”
