Cymbeline | The South Sudan Theatre Company

Kulu walad wa biniya al fi fouq lazim, ze nas al gi nedifo madakhin, kede oumon tala ghubar

'Golden lads and girls all must, as chimneysweepers, come to dust.'



In July 2011, after more than 50 years of violent struggle, the Republic of South Sudan became the world’s newest country. The South Sudan Theatre Company’s Cymbeline, the first ever adaptation of Shakespeare into Juba Arabic, draws on the performance traditions of the horn of Africa. Led by the renowned writer Taban Lo Liyong, the adaptation draws on local accents, modern slang and myth, to create a show that resonates with contemporary life and politics in South Sudan.

The company have a very entertaining blog documenting their incredible journey, take a read here.
