Twelve Angry Lebanese
A new interpretation of the American classic of '12 Angry Men' has been staged in the Roumieh Maximum Security Prison in Lebanon. Directed by Zeina Daccache, the production featured 45 inmates of the prison and their audience were the very representatives of the government that accused them. These spectators sat and listened while the actors questioned the very system that put them behind bars. Read our own Eyad Houssami's report on the production here.
