Hailed As An Audience Favorite At The 2020 Colorado New Play Summit, Hotter Than Egypt Is The Captivating Tale Of An American Couple’s Own Personal Revolutions.

No Matter Where You Live, The Ups And Downs Of Married Life Are Universal. For A Middle-aged American Couple Traveling To Egypt On A Business Trip-slash-vacation, Their Relationship Is Put To The Test When An Old Connection Leads To New Temptation. As The Eager Tourists Strive To Connect With Egyptian Culture In An Authentic Way, They End Up Getting More Than They Bargained For As Long-dormant Marital Issues Begin To Percolate.

Drawing From The Political, Cultural, And Religious Realities Of Living In The Region, This Quick-witted Dramedy Set In Cairo Pits Loyalty Against Attraction As Its Characters Grapple With The Ever-changing Struggle Of Staying Committed To Their Partners.

Middle East American Distinguished Playwright Award Winner Yussef El Guindi Specializes “In Cultural And Geographical Displacement, From Alienated Couples To The Promises And Frustrations Of Immigration, And The Ways People Maneuver Through Foreignness And Belonging” (Seattle Times).
