In Arabia We’d All Be Kings is the haunting tale of the darker side of New York City. Set amidst the new, antiseptic Times Square, an eccentric mix of people — from alcoholic hookers to an ex-con crackhead to an actor-turned-gigolo — meet to drink, talk, f–ck, attempt to make some sense of it all, and, simply, survive, the events in their seemingly inconsequential lives eerily mirroring the angst of a society hurtling towards the new millenium.

“Guirgis has a real talent for capturing the wit and absurdity in the most hopeless situation, and in a beautifully realized scene.”

– TimeOut NY

“Mr. Hoffman has mounted a crisp and taut production and has molded his good cast into a strong ensemble that never seems to pause to catch its breath.”

– The New York Times

“The acting by the 12-member ensemble is uniformly exceptional.”

– Daily News

“A magnificent achievement.”

– In Theater

“Hoffman has directed the piece with equal amounts of humor, heart, and humanity and has instilled a level of dignity.”
