About this show

It's Abbott and Costello meet the Arab Spring in Yussef El Guindi's political farce The Mummy and the Revolution. An Egyptian revolutionary, an American collector of antiquities, and a reanimated mummy - just three of the characters in this sexy, slap sticky romp where ideological opposites attract and the "new" Middle East is never too far from the same old same old. A comedic gem from the writer who brought the acclaimed plays Ten Acrobats in an Amazing Leap of Faith, Back of the Throat, and Our Enemies to Silk Road Rising audiences. Followed by a Q&A session with playwright Yussef El Guindi.
