    Sudan civil war survivor John Bul Dau will hold a question-and-answer session following a screening of the 2006 documentary God Grew Tired of Us, which follows Bul Dau's true story as an orphan in the civil war, traveling barefoot across the sub-Saharan desert. The film won the Sundance Film Festival's Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award.

    About John Bul Dau

    One of the storied "Lost Boys of Sudan," John Bul Dau has experienced trials most people never imagine. But now he is living the American Dream.

    Born in war-torn Southern Sudan, Dau is one of 27,000 boys driven from their villages when the northern Arab government attacked the ethnic minority population in 1987. For the next five years, Dau led groups of displaced boys across Sudan for hundreds of miles facing starvation, disease, and violence. In 2001, he immigrated to the U.S., but he hasn't forgotten his homeland. Today, he is president of the John Dau Foundation, and counts among his accomplishments the Duk Lost Boys Clinic in his home village, which has been responsible for:

    More than 70,000 vaccinations for children
    More than 2,000 mothers giving birth for the first time in a medical facility
    More than 52,000 patients receiving life-saving medical care

    Dau is now turning his attention to creating jobs in his native land, building the national economy, and providing opportunities for self-sufficiency.

    In 2007, Dau co-authored his first book, God Grew Tired of Us: A Memoir, which received National Geographic's Emerging Explorers award. His second book is Lost Boy, Lost Girl: Escaping Civil War in Sudan.

    Dau is a natural leader who exemplifies true resilience and perseverance under the most horrific of circumstances. Today, Dau is a compelling motivational speaker whose life is defined by his uncompromised commitment to having a lasting impact on the future of his native country.

     ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents The Servant of Two Masters. Identities are mistaken, engagements are broken and lovers are reunited in Carlo Goldoni's commedia dell'arte masterpiece. Mayhem erupts when the wily—and chronically hungry—servant Truffaldino (played by acclaimed actor Steven Epp) hatches a zany scheme to double his wages (and his meals) by serving two masters at once. The virtuosic physical comedy of The Servant of Two Masters is directed by Christopher Bayes, whose hilarious choreography is featured in the hit stage production of Alfred Hitchcock's The 39 Steps.
