Abstract

On 19 June 2023 I was working on the final edits of my upcoming book Of Kings and Clowns: Leadership in Contemporary Egyptian Theatre since 1967, when I read that Mohamed Abul-ʿEla El-Salamouny (1941-2023) had passed away. El-Salamouny is one of the playwrights whose work is at the centre of my book alongside that of Yusuf Idris (1925-1991), Fathia El-ʿAssal (1933-2014), and Lenin El-Ramly (1945-2020). I was fortunate enough to meet both El-Salamouny and El-Ramly on two occasions, in 2015 and 2016 in Cairo.
