Staging Shakespeare in Afghanistan Presentation on March 20


March 19, 2013

When Corinne Jaber decided to stage the Shakespeare comedy Love’s Labour’s Lost in Afghanistan with local actors, she knew it was an ambitious project.  The year was 2005; Shakespeare’s plays hadn’t been performed since the Soviets invaded Afghanistan in 1979, and both language and post-Taliban cultural barriers proved nearly insurmountable.  Despite many obstacles, Jaber and her Afghanistan production triumphed.  Now, see a presentation by Corinne Jaber on Wednesday, March 20th, 2013, at 5:30pm in MIT room 14E-304.
