Join us for a brief presentation followed by a Q&A with this daring troupe of student Shakespeareans from Iraq.
Shakespeare Iraq is a group of students from the American University of Iraq, Sulaimani. They are a mix of North and South, Sunni and Shia, Arab and Kurd - representing extremely different communities in an astoundingly diverse nation.
Co-sponsored by the Portland State University Middle East Studies Center and the Portland Shakespeare Project with additional support from the Artists Repertory Theatre and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival
Free & open to the public
