Originally published as part of the Tricycle Theatre's Afghanistan festival in April 2009, and subsequently revived in July 2010 prior to a USA tour, this anthology brings together thirteen renowned playwrights on the subject of Afghanistan. The Great Game explores the politics, social affairs and history of a country that is likely to be the most important focus of British, European and American foreign policy for many years to come.
