About the Show
Sabrina Mahfouz's play which shines a light on relations between Britain and the Middle East.
Through music, humour and history lessons, Sabrina Mahfouz's pens and stars in a new play that teaches its audience about the dynamics between Britain and the Middle East and explores where exactly the power lies. Directed by Stef O'Driscoll (Island Town, Sticks & Stones).
Not quite a lecture, not quite a play, Sabrina Mahfouz’s meditation on power politics, feminism and her Egyptian-British heritage aims high, but ultimately resembles a promising first draft...'
New lecture about British imperialism is energetically engaging, but rather slender...Although the metaphor of water is a powerful one, I left the theatre only partially nourished: I wanted much more of everything.'
It does feel like some of the storytelling moments haven’t fully coalesced into the production as a whole...But at its best, A History of Water has an intoxicating, headily persuasive energy to it.'
