Comedy of Sorrows

REBECCA JACOBSON
7:30 pm Friday, Jan. 25., Friday January 25 | Free.
 
To commemorate the second anniversary of the Egyptian Revolution, Boom Arts presents a staged reading of Ibrahim El-Husseini’s 2011 play about that uprising. El-Husseini’s work, which follows a young and educated woman oblivious to the suffering of her fellow citizens, was one of the first theatrical reactions to emerge after the revolution. It’s presented here in a translation by Mohammed Albakry and Rebekah Maggor.
