Richard III in Kurdish northern Iraq?
Salah Qasab, one of Iraq's best-known directors Shakespeare (Hamlet, The Tempest, Macbeth, etc.), is talking about staging an adaptation of Richard III in Irbil, Sulaymaniye, and other venues in the Kurdish region of Iraq, if he can get enough support from Kurdistan's ministry of culture. A few details in his interview with Al-Sabah al-Jadid newspaper (in Arabic).
But apparently he has had this plan for a while.
