|Written by: William Shakespeare; Directed by: Corinne Jaber; Cast: Mohammad Daoud Lodin, Shah Mamnoon Maqsudi, Parwin Mushtahel, Shakoor Shamshad, Abdul Haq & others; Two sets of identical twins, separated as babies during a sandstorm in this brand new Afghan adaptation of Shakespeare's classic, find themselves in the city of Kabul for the first time as adults. Soon, their friends mistake the twins for one another and bewilderment abounds, as the wife of one man declares the other to be her husband, pronouncing him mad when he denies the claim. Exuberant, mystical and brilliantly farcical, Shakespeare's shortest play is a romantic comedy of confusion and ultimate reunion.|
Rah-e Sabz's adaptation of Shakespeare's comedy is set in the bustling back streets of modern-day Kabul, places of laughter and joy that few foreigners ever get to see or hear about.
'We came into the world like brother and brother,
And now let's go hand in hand, not one before another.'
