This story starts with a place. No, a city. A city called Al Qahera.
This is a story about bodies. Young people discovering their own bodies and one another’s. Bodies that are violated and brutalised by the state. Bodies that make history.
Winner of The Women’s Prize for Playwriting 2020, YOU BURY ME is an explosive, political debut from Ahlam about a generation fighting to live and love freely in post-Arab Spring Cairo.
A staged reading of YOU BURY ME will be performed at Edinburgh International Festival 13-14 August 2021.
Director: Katie Posner
