Through its darkly comedic take on the life of a typical affluent family, The Last Supper highlights the inescapable emptiness that casts its shadow over the illusion of plenty and the hollow exchanges that masquerade as human connection. This clever and humorous tinsel of a play offers a zesty microcosm of what Egyptian society has become after the Arab Spring.

Written and directed by pioneering Egyptian independent theatre director and playwright Ahmed El Attar, The Last Supper transports us to Egypt, to the home of a well-off family as they gather around the dinner table. Through their vapid interactions, a feast of nihilism, absurdity and apathy is served. The cast brings to life the banalities of the contemporary Egyptian bourgeoisie. Each character embodies a self-absorbed philosophy mired in his or her preconceptions.

Performed in Arabic with English surtitles.
