Sixteen years ago, peasant women from the mountains of southern Turkey formed a theatre group, which later became the subject of the documentary, THE PLAY. The women acted out their own life stories in the village, and this experience changed their lives. Now, they take to the road with an adaptation of Shakespeare’s King Lear, travelling on dusty and dangerous roads to remote villages in the mountains of Turkey that hardly have drinking water, let alone stages or theaters, but magic is created in the hands of these spirited women.
