Members of ICWP were shocked and saddened to learn of the recent death of Member Natalya Churlyaeva, aged 58, from her husband Sergey Yakhimovich.

This extract from Sergey's message to us lists a few of her achievements and expresses an admiration shared by ICWP members.

From Sergey

"She was very outstanding and courageous woman.  She was not afraid of death and struggled for life until the end.  Besides her many other advantages and talents, she was known both in the theatre world and among academics.  In April Jan Ogden, the director, staged in New York her 10-min play "THE MYSTERIOUS SUITCASE" at John Chatterton's Short Play Lab, and one extract from her full-length play was published in ¬ęScenes from a Diverse World. Also, last year she published 5 scientific papers in international academic journals and many more in the Russian ones.  She is still a member of 3 Canadian, 1 US, and 1 New Zealand pedagogical journal editorial boards."

Many ICWP members have emailed us to mention her qualities of courage, forthrightness and formidable intellect.

A special Memorial Page will be created with more information and examples of her work.

The International Centre for Women Playwrights is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting women playwrights around the world.
