Juba Arabic Cymbeline tries to come home

Even the "As seen at Shakespeare's Globe" label doesn't seem to guarantee success...
An improbable sight can be witnessed in Juba these days: South-Sudanese actors dressed in traditional garb reciting Shakespeare in Juba Arabic. They are part of South Sudan Theatre Company, which has been fighting tooth and nail to help the art of theatre thrive in a difficult environment.
The rest of the France24 profile is equally complimentary/pessimistic.
