Kuwait: Richard III Returns to Life

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Kuwait, Arts & Culture

A new Arabic version of Richard III is being staged by a Kuwaiti troupe [1] at the Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon from 8 – 17 February 2007, says Kuwait blogger Mama Fusla. Set in the contemporary Arab world, this production of Richard III unfolds within the hothouse, feudal atmosphere of desert palaces in an oil-rich kingdom, she writes.
