Afghanistan: enduring freedom

Premiere: Teatro Mercadante/Napoli Teatro Festival, Napoli, 08/07/2018

About this event

The Great Game: Afghanistan is a portrait ‘play’ commissioned by London-based Tricycle Theatre to thirteen among the most interesting authors of English-language theatre. A drama experiment that well describes the complex and unsuccessful relation between Western World and the middle-eastern Country, ever so often – and against their will – at the centre of world’s chessboard.
The project Afghanistan by Bruni and De Capitani includes two independent yet connected shows: Afghanistan: il grande gioco and Afghanistan: enduring freedom.
