The 40 Rules of Love

Hassan Jai

Join us as we host actor Hassan El Jai for his adaptation of “The 40 Rules of Love,” a bestselling novel by the Turkish writer Elif Shafak. El Jai takes us on a journey to the sacred city of Konya during the 13th century through the eyes of Shams of Tabriz, the spiritual mentor of Jalaluddin Rumi. The journey is an expression of how Shams encounters and manifests Divine love through unexpected ways.

Hassan El Jai, a native of Casablanca, Morocco, is a professional actor who has trained at the Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute in New York and the Cours Florent in Paris. He now writes and adapts texts into three languages for theater and short movies in Morocco. He also teaches acting and trains people for public speaking, in addition to acting for theater, television, and movies. You can learn more about him at: http://www.hassaneljai.com/
