The Comedy Of Oedipus

Modernised Egypt in a secular and socialist fashion equals Arab socialism

'Part brash comedy, part tale of redemption, part soap opera'.

- - The Stage Reviews.
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.
