A young Zia Mohyeddin recited Shakespeare on PTV

The world is mourning the loss of the late director and theater teacher Zia Moheyuddin who passed away early this morning. And there’s no better way to remember the legend’s legacy than to watch him pay tribute to the man he looked up to the most, Shakespeare.

It is an understatement to say that Mohyeddin is a fan of the British writer. He, on several occasions, not only spoke about his work and directed and adapted the plays he wrote, but he also classified what makes Shakespeare, Shakespeare. The last play performed at the National Academy of Performing Arts (Napa) directed by Mohyeddin was Shakespeare’s most famous play, Romeo & Juliet.

Mohyeddin hosted the very popular television show, The Zia Mohyeddin Show back in the 1970s and there was a whole lot of praise for his English maestro and his work. To remember, get the goosebumps, and enjoy the magical voice, the aura, and the tension that Mohyeddin held, watch this video of him reciting the work of his beloved, Shakespeare.
