From writer Ahlam and director Katie Posner, this film presents the award-winning You Bury Me as a poignant snapshot of post-Arab-Spring Cairo.
This is a story about young people discovering their own bodies and one anotherʼs. Bodies that are violated and brutalised by the state. Bodies that make history. Winner of the inaugural Women’s Prize for Playwriting 2020, You Bury Me is about a generation fighting to live and love freely in post-Arab Spring Cairo. This rehearsed reading is presented by Paines Plough, Ellie Keel Productions and 45North.
This is a digital performance that will be available to watch online from 17 August at 7pm to 19 August at 7pm. Please book a free ticket to watch this performance at home.
