Herat Experiences Shakespeare

Shakespeare’s “Love’s Labor’s Lost” was preformed before large audiences of men and women in the ancient and artistic city of Herat throughout the month of July. The dramatic production was a stark contrast to the time when the Taliban ruled Herat, destroying paintings and artifacts, and banning music and dancing. The acting troupe, made up of 11 men and women, has performed “Love's Labor's Lost” throughout the country to large crowds of food vendors, policemen and picnicking families. At the final performance, one of the actors spoke with journalists about his experience. “This was in our culture once. It was not new to us, and we want to see more. Slowly, slowly, we have to take a step. Things will take time to change.”
