Description Four Egyptian muezzins from the mosques of Cairo bring us this remarkable documentary theatre work. Their livelihoods singing the daily calls to prayer are threatened by a government decision to replace them, and Cairo's cacophonous soundscape, with a centralised radio version. The muezzins share their stories, their fervour and their differences in this multimedia insight into the complexities of contemporary Egypt.
