The Egypt Play, or The Misses Blake on a Holiday Jihad, which was named a 2013 O’Neill semifinalist, is a dark comedy about two British women—mother and daughter—traveling in 1880s Egypt in search of adventure and escape from their restrictive lives and from each other. When they hire local guides and start heading south on the Nile toward a war between Mahdist rebels and British occupiers, things get… well… real.
The reading will be a partially staged, script-in-hand performance, directed by Nicholas Roesler and produced by Steven Koernig. It will feature local actors Abigail Schumann, Sharon Forsher Hollands, Miguel Girona, Jr., and Damian Girona.
