A forensic reconstruction of Twelfth Night transforms into an unequivocal act of defiance towards the state. Third part of the Arab Shakespeare trilogy. A dark satire on the decades of hopelessness and political inertia that fed recent revolts across the Arab region. The closing volley of the internationally celebrated Arab Shakespeare Triolgy.

Conceived by Georgina Van Welie and Sulayman Al Bassam
