The Speaker's Progress at BAM

via BAM

I recently got my tickets in the mail, for The Speaker's Progress play directed by Sulayman Al-Bassam. A couple of the actors are my personal friends, so I will be going to cheer them on with some good natured Kuwaiti spirit - can't wait. The play will be help at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) and tickets are still available, so if you are around the area I urge you to go!

"Led by Kuwaiti writer-director Sulayman Al-Bassam (Richard III: An Arab Tragedy, part of Muslim Voices: Arts & Ideas, 2009 Spring), SABAB—an international company composed of performers from the Middle East and beyond—brings a story of censorship, sexism, and insurrection inspired by the revolutionary spirit pervading the Arab world. In an unnamed totalitarian state, all forms of theater have been banned, but when a subversive play is discovered, it quietly comes to symbolize an entire movement of revolt. The Speaker’s Progress is a complex, provocative indictment of oppressive state power and its limits in silencing dissent." - BAM
