Theater Department Students Flourish at Bilkent
Fourth year students from the Faculty of Music and Performing Arts premiered the play Zoraki Tabip on February 4 in the FMPA Theater Hall. The performance is their senior project.
Zoraki Tabip was adapted from Molière's 1666 Le Médecin Malgré Lui, a Doctor in Spite of Himself or Mock Doctor. Prominent intellectual and politician Ahmet Vefik Paşa (1823-1891) translated the play into Turkish during the Tanzimat Period of the Ottoman Empire, about 150 years ago.
