Hamlet and Hamlet satire postponed in Egypt
A protest strike by young theatre people (in Arabic) has postponed the presentation at Cairo's high-profile Tal`ia (Vanguard) Theatre of three plays including Hamlet and The Dance of the Scorpions, Mahmoud Aboudoma's 1989 postmodern political Hamlet offshoot. The three were apparently scheduled to run for a full week -- which is a big deal since experimental and youth (or other amateur) plays typically only get to play for one or two nights.
