Too Beautiful - a play by Saif Alsaegh

“Too Beautiful” premieres Friday, April 10, at 9 p.m. at the University of great Falls Theater. “Too Beautiful” is a theatrical collection of short plays written and directed by Saif Alsaegh about a playwright and a novelist who live a dark life. Both hallucinate, both talk to God, both hate cities and their dull sun. But both have a tiny bit of hope left in humanity. There is glitter, pink hamlets, bombs and monkeys. This play is for mature audiences.
Additional performances of “Too Beautiful” are Saturday, April 11, at 9 p.m., Thursday, April 16, at 9 p.m. and Saturday, April 18, at 4:30 p.m.

Nouveau Nostalgia and Saif Alsaegh are hitting the road this month with a whirlwind NW book tour. Saif will be doing a reading/signing in the following cities:

Monkeyboy Books (123 S. Wall St.): 6:30pm

Left Bank Books Collective (92 Pike St.): 7:30pm
RSVP on Facebook

Shakespeare & Co. (103 S. Third St. W): 7:00pm
Facebook event page is forthcoming, but in the meantime, you can like Shakespeare & Co.’s page.

Do you live in PORTLAND, OR? 
As you can see, we have a bit of a gap in our schedule, but we have no official Portland event scheduled. We know that the 20th is Easter Sunday, but if anyone out there is interested in hosting an event on either April 19th or 20th, do send us a message.

Speaking of Portland, Iraqi Headaches is  now also available at Powell’s City of Books. Even better, it’s on sale for the entire month of April, so if you’re loading up over there already, do give it a look.
In Great Falls, MT: The book is also available at Hastings.

HOWEVER! The only way to get the Deluxe Edition with the hand-painted slipcover is to order either directly through this site, or to come to one of our readings. Only 100 will be available, and we’ve already sold a fair amount. Come on, be fancy and come to a reading.
