Drowning in Cairo

Drowning in Cairo follows the lives of three Egyptian gay men from different walks of life, whose fate forces them together time and again over a 20 year period. The play is set between 1997 and 2017 as Moody, Khalid and Taha age from 13 to 33 and the political system and queer life transform around them. In eleven episodic scenes, Drowning in Cairo chronicles the contemporary history of the queer community’s relationship to the law and public space in Egypt.


Memorial is a verbatim play that uses embodied rituals and practices to tell the story of the Christchurch Muslim community during and following the two mosque shootings that occurred on March 15th, 2019 in Christchurch, New Zealand. Memorial chronicles the impact of the shootings through the words and experiences of seven citizens of Christchurch, focusing on the friends and families of those who were lost in the attacks. It also deeply engages with themes of migration, diaspora, the experience of otherness, and xenophobia.
