The original play was written by Cocoa author Kathy Mardirosian. The author said the show will be presented in an immersive environment where the audience and actors are not separated by a stage or bright lighting. The actors will walk among the audience members.

“The production will be all around you,’’ Mardirosian said. “It’s not just a 360-degree set but makes you part of it.’’

One of the founders of the Sister City Program, Mardirosian said her play is about the lives of ordinary people during the age of the Egyptian Pharaohs.
