The Comedy Of Oedipus
Modernised Egypt in a secular and socialist fashion equals Arab socialism
Ali Salem is famed throughout the Arab world as a brilliant comic playwright, whose best-known work is ‘Madraset Al Moshaghbeen’. In ‘The Comedy of Oedipus’, the wit and offbeat humour of his surprisingly ‘Pythonesque’ vision of a world determined to go mad translate easily into both the English language and the notoriously elusive British sense of humour. Over 14s only. General admission.
'Part brash comedy, part tale of redemption, part soap opera'.
