Although the new faith did not completely lack rituals, it did not encourage drama
and/or human represen- tations. ... Later came the introduction of plays into the
curriculum by Arab dramatists and still later came plays by Bahraini dramatists.

Offering a variety of perspectives on the history and role of Arab Shakespeare translation, production, adaptation and criticism, this volume explores both international and locally focused Arab/ic appropriations of Shakespeare’s plays and sonnets. In addition to Egyptian and Palestinian theatre, the contributors to this collection examine everything from an Omani performance in Qatar and an Upper Egyptian television series to the origin of the sonnets to an English-language novel about the Lebanese civil war. Addressing materials produced in several languages from literary Arabic (fuṣḥā) and Egyptian colloquial Arabic (‘ammiyya) to Swedish and French, these scholars and translators vary in discipline and origin, and together exhibit the diversity and vibrancy of this field.

It is only in fairly recent times that Arab writers have turned their hands to the theater. This collection of nineteen short plays is evidence of the remarkable strides made as numerous playwrights have come to grips with the problems and potential involved with this genre. The essence of the collection is its sheer variety. The subject matter ranges from the horrors of a political prison camp to the comic tribulations of furtive lovers trapped in a minefield, from historical fable to the world of official bureaucracy, while dramatic treatments range from the conventional to the highly experimental, some using surreal techniques--now disturbing, now hilariously amusing. Many of the plays use humor or pungent satire to address distinctively Arab issues and problems, whether these have their source outside or inside the Arab world itself. The collection gives a valuable insight into a fast-changing and increasingly distinctive area of modern Arabic literature.Featured authors and plays:Yusuf al-'Ani -- Where the Power LiesFateh Azzam and others -- AnsarSamia Qazmouz Bakri -- The AlleyMahmoud Diyab -- Men Have HeadsAhmad Ibrahim al-Fagih -- The Singing of the StarsAlfred Farag -- The PersonTawfiq al-Hakim -- Boss Kanduz's Apartment BuildingTawfiq al-Hakim -- War and PeaceJamal Abu Hamdan -- Actress J's Burial NightWalid Ikhlasi -- Pleasure Club 21Riad Ismat -- Was Dinner Good, Dear Sister?Raymond Jbarra -- The TravelerSultan Ben Muhammad al-Qasimi -- The Return of Hulegu'Ali Salim -- The Coffee BarMamduh Udwan -- The MaskMamduh Udwan -- Reflections of a Garbage CollectorSa'd al-Din Wahba -- The Height of WisdomSa'dallah Wannus -- The Glass CaféSa'dallah Wannus -- The King's Elephant
