Elza Zagreda

By Cat Wayland

I have been following this wonderful woman and her theatre pieces for a year now. From what I hear, she tells the tale of life “Albanian” with great accuracy and humor!

When we can tell a story that shares insight with such wonderful laughter it gives pleasure and relief to the truths of the common threads that weave us all together – growing up, love and yes, even divorce.

Divorce Albanian Style


With an undergraduate degree from Fordham University and a Master‘s Degree in Dramatic Writing from NYU, Elza Zagreda has worked as an actress in such venues as The Helen Hayes Theatre (sharing a stage with Vanessa Redgrave and Tim Robbins), Classic Stage, and the West End Theatre. She has also appeared in work written and directed by Eve Ensler and Ellen McLaughlin. Recent TV appearances include “Law and Order: SVU, ABC-TV’s “One Life to Live” and she was also one of the lovely blondes featured in the 1-800-CALL-ATT commercial with Carrot Top. A gifted comedienne, Corn Bread and Feta Cheese was developed under the mentorship of teacher David LaBarca and director, Vincent Marano. Elza has performed “Corn Bread & Feta” in NY & LA and was recently invited to perform at Boston University in December 2005. A published writer and producer, in 2002 she traveled to Albania and co-produced the documentary “Te Durosh” (to Endure). The internationally award winning film gives voice to women’s experiences during one of the worst Communist dictatorship in history. Her first U.S. theatre work “Corn Bread & Feta Cheese: Growing Up Fat and Albanian” was received with great success. Divorce! is her second U.S. based theatre production.
