Sulayman in Stratford

Sulayman al-Bassam outside the Swan Theatre.

(Using) his kingdom for a horse

Fayez Kazak's Richard rides a pathetic "horse" named Al-Umma. He would ride that Umma into the ground if it would help him stay in power. But as you can see, it only goes around in circles. Onward, Rosinante!

The "vulpine" Fayez Kazak as Richard (Emir Gloucester).

"Where are your children?" The amazing Amal Omran as Queen Margaret flogs Queen Elizabeth (Carole Abboud).
