"Perhaps it is a self-realization challenge..."
US Premiere of Two One Act plays from Egypt by Alfred Farag
Translated by Dina Amin
The Visitor Directed by Gail Humphries Mardirosian
The Peephole Directed by Hanna Bondarewska
"This is a crime that I am committing; even though I know the consequences full well, I still commit it."
Ambassador Theater invites you to trespass into a nighttime world of desperate crime and ruthless criminals. Or are they? Farag invites actors and spectators to play the game of a lifetime in the US premieres of two suspenseful Egyptian one act plays. The Visitor deals with deception (both of others and of ourselves), and The Peephole addresses the soullessness of an unchained capitalist society.
