How do you adapt Shakespeare to Swahili?

A Swahili version of Shakespeare's play Merry Wives of Windsor was performed at the London Globe Theatre.

The Bitter Pills theatre company from Nairobi rehearsed tirelessly at the National Theatre in preparation for their performance of Merry Wives of Windsor in Swahili.
