El Araneb (The Rabbits)
By Lotfi El Kholy
Directed by Mahmoud El Lozy
Scenery and Lighting by John Hoey
Costumes by Jeanne Arnold
A comic fantasy written in 1964, El Araneb centers upon a married couple who exchange gender roles. The original struggle between a conservative husband and a progressive wife takes a comic turn and brings to light many of the assumptions that are still prevalent about gender roles.
