Syria’s Romeo & Juliet at Zaatari Camp

For the World Theatre Day, 27 March, Syrian actor and director Nawwar Bulbul will premiere “Romeo & Juliet” at the Zaatar refugee camp in Jordan.

The theatre play will be entirely performed by Syrian refugee children living in Zaatari; they will be joined on Skype by other Syrian kids, still living inside the country.

Nawwar has directed other theatre plays performed by Syrians living inside the camps. Recently, his “King Lear” adapted from a Shakespeare’s play has gained international attention.

Watch out for this new “Romeo & Juliet” production in Zaatari which hopefully will travel around the world (although never easy to get visas for Syrians, these days; not even for those involved in arts and culture).
