Hotter Than Egypt – World Premiere

Dramedy set after the Egyptian revolution, exploring uneven power dynamics of tourists and locals

Directed by John Langs
Dramaturgy by Nakissa Etemad

Selected by MTC’s new Associate Artistic Director Nakissa Etemad, Yussef El Guindi’s Hotter Than Egypt will receive its world premiere in a co-production with ACT in Seattle.

This passionate play follows American couple Paul and Jean as they travel to Cairo for their 24th wedding anniversary. Long-dormant troubles within the marriage start to percolate, and their two Egyptian tour guides, newly engaged Maha and Seif, become drawn into the crisis.

This dramedy set in the aftermath of the Egyptian revolution explores the uneven power dynamics between these Western tourists and the locals.

Dreams and relationships are put to the test when old connections lead to new temptations in this brand new piece by El Guindi, whom the Los Angeles Times calls “undeniably gifted.”
