(Andrew Dickson’s article appeared in the Guardian, 6/7.)

Though there's been plenty of error in Afghan politics in the past few decades, we've seen precious little comedy as the most recent news, a triple suicide bombing in Kandahar and rumours of civilian deaths in a Nato drone strike in Logar province, mournfully confirms. So perhaps it seems perverse for Kabul's Roy-e-Sabs company to contribute what's often seen as Shakespeare's frothiest play to the Globe to Globe festival (not least because they were forced to rehearse in India rather than at home). Is there much to laugh about in Afghanistan at the moment?
