Making its US premiere, this darkly comedic satire delves into the life of an affluent Egyptian family as they gather around the table for dinner. Although the meal never seems to arrive, the audience feasts on the absurdity and banality of these caricatures thriving in their self-absorbed philosophies.
Created by acclaimed Egyptian playwright and director Ahmed El Attar, the play highlights the harsh indifference of the bourgeoisie in Egypt and the hollow exchanges which masquerade as human connection. In Arabic with projected English titles. Recommended for age 16 and up.
