Adrift PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Adrift free pdf Inspired by the novel "Adrift on the Nile" by Egyptian Nobel laureate Naguib Mahfouz, "Adrift" is set against the backdrop of a region burdened by the gorgon-head legacies of colonialism, corruption, and violent dictatorship. It is about a group of secular Egyptians at the epicenter of the West's ever-accelerating and utterly ahistorical imperial culture of commoditization and capital and its doppelganger: the tide of religious fundamentalism that is growing ever more powerful in its wake.Beginning as a drugged-out drawing room comedy, "Adrift" ends in violent chaos - by the end of the play, the Nile River houseboat of its setting seems transplanted to flood-ravaged New Orleans. It is a play about the tragedy of the innocents caught between the Holy Wars of our twenty-first century.
