Romeo and Juliet in Baghdad - Ahmed Salah Moneka and Sarwa Rasool 2

'A modern reworking of Romeo and Juliet staged in the Iraqi capital before coming to Britain shows the play's timeless – and explosive – quality.'

Journalist Richard Spencer visits Baghdad, 'a city with more than a thousand years of often glorious history'.

He meets the production's cast and director to talk about Shakespeare, Capulets and Montagues and the city's past and present.
