Carl Weber, world-renowned director, dramaturg, and translator, joined the Berliner Ensemble as an actor and assistant director to Bertolt Brecht in 1952. As a director at the Ensemble during the sixties, he staged numerous plays and guest-directed at theaters in Germany, Scandinavia, and the U.S. In 1966, Weber was appointed master-teacher of directing and acting at NYU. Later, he chaired the graduate directing department at the Tisch School of the Arts. Since 1984, he has led the Ph.D. program in directing at Stanford.

Weber has directed more than 80 productions, collaborating with Peter Palitzsch, Ed Bullins, Peter Handke, and Tony Kushner, and has translated and edited the work of Heiner Müller. At Trinity, he will direct Bertolt Brecht's The Good Person of Szechwan, running November 12 - 14 and 17 - 20.
