Lewis has written a script. Eighty pages in ten days. Hardly slept…

He taps the bag on his shoulder with a delicate fingertip like it’s a hot kettle. Cliff is then given ten minutes on the problem with Lewis’s printer. Then the history of problems with his printer.

Then problems with printers more generally… Robert Clifford is in Cairo to present his latest film for a festival prize. It has taken seven gruelling years ofhis life to make and is definitely NOT a film about his mother.

But his moment in the spotlight is not quite as he scripted. There are rumours the jury could be influenced. Nobody can lay their hands on a copy of the film.

And even his girlfriend thinks it’s about his mother. Cliff’s producer has not turned up but sent his nephew Lewis Proudfoot instead. Lewis has a script of his own to sell and is determined that everyone should hear about it.

Then a meeting is arranged with a group oft he festival organiser’s friends, who may or may not be revolutionaries… Angels of Cairo is a fast-moving, acerbic comedy told over a single day but capturing a lifetime of angst and self-doubt.
