This festival explores the culture and history of Afghanistan, which has been the victim of the machinations of the great powers for almost 200 years.

Plays by David Edgar, Abi Morgan, Ben Ockrent, David Greig, Stephen Jeffreys, Joy Wilkinson and others look at three different periods of foreign intervention – 1842-1930, 1979-1996 and 1996 to today.
