Drama highlights Afghan history of conflict


A unique stage production is addressing Afghanistan's history which is littered with scars from conflicts old and new. The series of plays is titled The Great Game, a term used to describe the 19th century struggle between the Russian and British empires for supremacy in Central Asia.

After a successful run in London, director Nicolas Kent talked to Matt Frei about the US tour, which starts in Washington's Shakespeare Theatre.
