A theatrical miracle from Afghanistan, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, London
Roy-e-Sabs is a theatrical miracle. In 2005, the group performed Love’s Labour’s Lost in an ancient garden in war-ravaged Kabul, close to where the founder of the Mughal Empire lies buried. The controversial production saw men and women acting together, the women occasionally not wearing headscarves and lovers holding hands – truly audacious things to rehearse and perform in modern Afghanistan. For the first time, they are leaving Kabul to come to the Globe with a new production of The Comedy of Errors.
Performed in Dari with an English synopsis.
Globe to Globe is an unprecedented multilingual programme of Shakespeare productions produced by Shakespeare’s Globe as part of the World Shakespeare Festival. Over six weeks every one of Shakespeare’s plays will be performed by a major company from a different country in its own language.
