The world premiere dramatic reading of the new play byYussef El Guindi will broadcast from the Kay White Hall on Thursday, August 6 at 7:30pm. Yussef El Guindi, a Core Company playwright for Seattle’s ACT, will join the cast after the reading for a discussion of this new work. Read by Monika Jolly, Anne Allgood, Wasim Nomani, John San Nicolas and Darragh Kennan, Hotter Than Egypt follows the American couple, Paul and Jean, who are visiting Egypt for their wedding anniversary. Within days, trouble within the marriage starts to percolate, and their two Egyptian tour guides become drawn into the crisis. The play explores the uneven power dynamics between these Western tourists and the locals showing them around; and the dreams triggered – and shared – when these four characters from different cultural backgrounds meet.
Presented by Vashon Center for the Arts and Trial and Error Productions.
