“Amina’s Stories” is a new translated stage adaptation of the award winning Egyptian short story collection by Hossam Fahr, combining traditional Egyptian storytelling techniques with modern staging and media. This new production will be performed by Egyptian scholar and actress Asmaa Yehia and directed by Egyptian-American director Tracy Cameron Francis. The collection was published in Egypt in 2007 to wide acclaim and speaks not only to the unique relationship of grandmother and grandchild, but also gives us a window into the culture and life of a generation of Egyptians that is quickly disappearing.
