The Bob Woodruff Foundation, British Council, and Shakespeare Theatre Company present Tricycle Theatre Company's The Great Game: Afghanistan.
This unique theatrical event explores, in three separate thrilling and provocative plays, the culture and history of Afghanistan since Western involvement in 1842 to the present day. All three parts can be experienced together as one event or as separate productions and do not need to be seen in chronological order.
After a viewing of The Great Game in July 2010, the UK's top military commander General Sir David Richards said, "I can tell you that the Ministry of Defense as a whole, and certainly the armed forces desperately want to understand the country well, and this series of plays - if I had seen it before I had deployed [to Afghanistan] myself in 2005 for the first time - would have made me a much better Commander of the ISAF Forces."
