Syrian ambassador to Pakistan Riad Ismat on directing Shakespeare
Syrian playwright, cultural bureaucrat, and diplomat Riad Ismat is now Syrian ambassador to Pakistan. In this capacity he addressed a local Shakespeare society at Greenwich University. His (not very well covered) remarks there seem to have been quite general, as befits a diplomat; for more details see his essay هاملت كما اخرجته in his collection شيطان المسرح.
