We had a fantastic convo with Egyptian playwright Adam Elsayigh! Adam came to Mark for Redaction in NY, which is where we first met him. It was so nice to get to talk with him more.
Adam has been creating plays that give voice to the issues that queer Egyptians have faced. During this episode, we talked about the importance of representation of SWANA artists, about the reactions that different audiences have had to his play “Drowning in Cairo”, what elements Adam feels are vital to keep in mind when writing and presenting his plays, and much more!
