Vanishing Point Artistic Director Matthew Lenton directs Shakespeare’s controversial drama in a new production for the National Theatre of Kosovo. The production, in Albanian, will explore the creeping tide of prejudice and intolerance in a world where religious difference is the source of increasing suspicion and division. With typical visual flair and imagination, the production continues Vanishing Point’s spirit of international collaboration and inter-linguistic creation with one of Europe’s youngest countries and most ambitious emerging National Theatres.
