The Rebirth of Libya’s National Theatre Festival

Taking to stages in the capital Tripoli and Misrata, about 190 kilometres to the east, performers came from 11 cities around Libya — a country split between a United Nations-supported government in the west and a rival administration backed by military strongman Khalifa Haftar in the east. When it last took place in 2008, the festival was to be held again in four years.
