GIVE US OUR MONEY
by No'man 'Ashur
A play in three acts
Translated by Mahmoud El Lozy
Following its 1958 production at the National
Theatre, this biting satire of the cinema industry by Egypt's foremost
writer of social drama, provoked uproar in cinematic circles and
a prominent film director demanded that its author be put on trial.
The play attempts to illustrate the mercantile and artistically
debilitated condition of the Egyptian cinema in the fifties, addressing
issues still relevant today.
