“Love is a search for faith. Love is passion. Putting your hand in the fire and believing. Ripping your heart out and laying it on a sidewalk for mobs to trample. What would you do for love?”

In present day Cairo, two men are forced to confront their cultural identities, traditions and a repressive government in a gripping search for love and faith.

Cry Havoc is a passionate love story between a spirited young Egyptian and an idealistic British writer.

Tom Coash’s poignant, intimate play explores the relationship between the Western world and the Islamic Middle East through the eyes of two people asking if love can bridge even the widest cultural divide.


'A surprisingly tender play about love and pain' ★★★★ Theatre Weekly 

'This impressive play goes far beyond it's central and timely theme of queer persecution to open up questions about faith, love and an allegiance to country that one man must reconcile before he is able to save himself' ★★★★ Jack the Lad 

'This is a love story, including the discovery of one’s self, expertly and magically told and reinforces the belief that love is worth fighting for' ★★★★ Boyz

'Go see this show' ★★★★ London Theatre Reviews

'Sensitively deft direction from Pamela Schermann' ★★★★ Act Drop

'Hauntingly beautiful and honest' ★★★★ LGBTQ Arts

'Cry Havoc is worthwhile and fine theatre' Ham & High

'With a tender touch, Coash melds political and personal into a raw play; one which reflects on modern Britain as much as it does on Egypt' WhatsOnStage
