Boston trailer for Al-Bassam's "Speaker's Progress"
Swear to Allah, it's not theatre! ArtsEmerson in Boston has officially announced its 2011-12 season, and Sulayman Al-Bassam's pseudo-post-but-actually-meta-theatrical The Speaker's Progress, a dark and jam-packed take on Twelfth Night, is on the schedule for October 12-16. Details and a video clip here.
