The talk will include her family history in Georgia, including stories of their friendship with Sir Oliver Wardrop (British Commissioner in Georgia), her childhood in Crimea, escape from the communists to England via Constantinople, and her life as an actress in London.

The second talk will be by Prof Elguja Khintibidze, who will present his book on the links between Rustaveli and Shakespeare.
