Sulayman Al Bassam is one of the Arab world's most celebrated playwrights and directors of theatre. His thought-provoking adaptations of Shakespeare have been performed in sixteen different countries, in Arabic and English, to both critical and popular acclaim.

The Global Shakespeare programme has nominated Al Bassam for a Distinguished Visiting Fellowship at QMUL in the spring of 2016. During his one-month residency, Al Bassam will undertake to direct an adaptation of Shakespeare. This production will be an historic premiere: rather than staging one of the plays from his Arab Shakespeare Trilogy, Al Bassam plans to author a new adaption of a Shakespearean comedy for the purpose.
