In this study we present an analysis of the theatrical work al-Iskandar al-akbar written by Muṣṭafā Maḥmūd. The four acts that make up the play are set in four different and important locations for the history of Alexander and his image, which in itself contains typical elements of the Greek tragedy hero, is redefined within the contemporary Egyptian cultural and theatrical context. The settings of literary fiction, by also entering into a relationship with where the work has been written and the cultural system into which it is inserted, can become symbols or metaphors functional to a specific political discourse. To put things in perspective, I had to manage with Muṣṭafā Maḥmūd background and political views, reconnecting it with the contents of the play and his own production.
