About The Fifth Wheel
Since the withdrawal of the allied troops, the artists of the all-women Simorgh Theatre in Herat have been rushing from hideout to hideout. In the underground, they deal with texts “From the Reading Book for City Dwellers” by Bertolt Brecht and bring into the picture what this perspective makes possible. Robert Schuster, with Die KULA Compagnie, sees himself as a transmitter between these women and an international public.
