It would be an understatement to say that Mohyeddin was a fan of the British playwright

He has, on multiple occasions, not only spoken about his work and directed and adapted plays written by him but has also decoded what makes Shakespeare, Shakespeare

The last play staged at the National Academy of Performing Arts (Napa) directed by Mohyeddin was Shakespeare’s most famous tragic affair, Romeo & Juliet

Mohyeddin hosted the hugely popular television talk show, The Zia Mohyeddin Show back in the 1970s and there was a whole episode dedicated to his British maestro and his work

To reminisce, get goosebumps, and be nostalgic for the magical voice, the aura, and the enigma that Mohyeddin held, watch this clip of him reciting the work of his favourite, Shakespeare
