In 2005 a group of actors in Kabul performed Shakespeare’s “Love’s Labours Lost” to the cheers of Afghan audiences and the raves of foreign journalists. For the first time in many years, men and women appeared on stage together. The future held no limits, the actors believed. This fondly told, frequently funny account captures the triumphs and foibles of the actors as they extend their Afghan passion for poetry.
