“A groundbreaking exploration of the transformative events unfolding in today’s Arab world.” —Al Watan Daily Newspaper (Kuwait)
In an unnamed totalitarian state, all forms of theater have been banned. When a condemned 1960s production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night is discovered, it becomes the focal point for political resistance blogs and underground social networks. A dark satire on the decades of hopelessness and political inertia that have fed recent revolts across the Arab region, The Speaker’s Progress is a daring theatrical metaphor for the mechanisms of dissent.
