Left on Yellow Brick Road
Dates: February 13–February 16, 2020
Run time: TBD
Location: Lalie Theatre
Sherif Amin is the first Egyptian to perform a solo show at ACT.
When a boy from Egypt unexpectedly finds himself in the Land of Oz, he travels to a place past the Emerald City where he stays. Soon he starts to wonder, is it better to stay in Oz or find his way back?
Sherif Amin explores the ugly side of love and heartbreak through the technicolored glasses of an American classic. Left on Yellow Brick Road digs deep into cyclical patterns we try to hide when we lose ourselves and our sense of home.
This performance will be double billed with Jasmine Joshua’s Bread Crumbs.
