The Comedy Of Errors is performed in Dari Persian by Roy-e-Sabs as part of the Globe’s innovative programme Globe To Globe.
Roy-e-Sabs is a theatrical miracle. In 2005, the group performed Love’s Labour’s Lost in an ancient garden in war-ravaged Kabul, close to where the founder of the Mughal Empire lies buried. The controversial production saw men and women acting together, the women occasionally not wearing headscarves, and lovers holding hands – truly audacious things to rehearse and perform in modern Afghanistan. For the first time, they are leaving Kabul to come to the Globe with Corinne Jaber’s new production of The Comedy of Errors.
Globe To Globe sees every one of Shakespeare’s 37 plays performed in a different language by international companies. The result is a once in a life time, six week celebration of the incredible breadth of communities and languages that make up London’s vibrant cultural landscape.
