Reviewed by Hi! Drama

"Drowning in Cairo is staggeringly beautiful in the levels of suffering to which its protagonists sink, and the audience tumbles down with them."

"Mwaluko has given us a beautiful and compelling exploration of the intractable conflict of contemporary life."

"Charming, funny and sentimental, the play lacks the omnipresent wall of oppression overshadowing the action. "

"Mr. Liu’s play offers us a nuanced approach that acknowledges queer difficulties, while suggesting that the current gay rights response may be inadequate."
