Monarch Theater NYC is pleased to be the first in the U.S. to introduce the work of the up-and-coming Lebanese writer Abdel Rahim Al–Awji. His SLEEPING BEAUTY INSOMNIA has received readings in Lebanon and Tunisia, and earned Al-Awji a residency in London’s Royal Court Theatre’s emerging international writers workshop in July 2009.
With Beckettian undertones, SLEEPING BEAUTY INSOMNIA is a cruel, yet darkly comic exploration of the 2006 Lebanon War that opened many scars from the Civil War era.
The Reading will take place Monday, April 25th at 7pm @ La MaMa Rehearsal Lofts
47 Great Jones Street, NYC 10003.
6 to Astor Place, R to 8th Street, or BDFM to Broadway/Lafayette.
