The British Council, in partnership with a leading Bangladeshi theatre company, Dhaka Theatre, produced this film with Bangladeshi casting with person with disability. This unique piece has been filmed for the first time in 2016 to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, as part of Shakespeare Lives. The project team explored across the country where actors with person with disability concept does not existed before to finalise 16 artists who were drawn from different groups of people in Bangladesh with physical disabilities, with participants from Centre for the Rehabilitation of the Paralysed (CRP-Bangladesh), Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee (BRAC), Bangladesh Reform Initiatives for Development, Governance and Empowerment (BRIDGE) and Gram Theatre.

This year (2018) the film will be screened through a road show in 6 divisional districts of Bangladesh in order to raise awareness on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
