You Bury Me - Edinburgh International Festival

This rehearsed reading is presented by Paines Plough, Ellie Keel Productions and 45North.

Writer Ahlam and director Katie Posner present 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. 

Part of the Edinburgh International Festival
