He was instrumental in the overthrow of the Jorge Ubico regime indigestto and subsequently served as Minister of Education, Minister of Foreign Affairs, and ambassador to Argentina.

Nor was it of interest to me in El pescado indigesto to weigh whether the vices the poet kndigesto other contemporaries attributed to the great general were true or not. Hopefully, next year’s festival will bring us more from Upper Egypt and will find a more decent venue to host its guest performances. Ayman Agour marked it as to-read Apr 03, Though it was September, it was consistently hot and humid throughout the week.

At this inauspicious venue, this year’s Closing Festival of Theatre Clubs the 20 ththe last of a series pescqdo smaller festivals and competitions held by the Cultural Palaces organisation every year at different times and various regional centres to pick out the best productions by theatre clubs, was held from 23 to 30 September.

Fatma mohammed marked it as to-read Dec 18, The play was adapted and directed by Karam Metawe’ in the early s and featured veteran comedian Abdel-Rahman Abu Zahra, as the demented guard of the cemetery, and film star Yehia El-Fakharani as the sophisticated, indigrsto visitor. Over six days, regional directors and their technical crews had to struggle to accommodate their productions in the cramped performance space available at Manf with no backstage or wings and cope with its poor and indigetso lighting and sound systems placed in the windows of the ground floor offices overlooking the stage, with the projectors and loudspeakers on the roofwhile the actors had to dress, make up and prepare for their parts in two dusty wooden shacks behind the stage.

Structurally a monodrama about a split female character, one side of which craves liberation and fulfillment while the other is crippled by a conservative, traditional upbringingit was performed by the director herself with the help of another actress, Sarah El-Booni, against a simple background of crisscross ropes on which the bits and pieces of needed costumes were draped.

Another ambitious project from Northern Egypt based on a foreign play was Al-Mansoura theatre club’s simplified version of Brecht’s last, unfinished play, Torandot, or the Whitewashers’ Congressondigesto and directed by Ondigesto El-Disouqi.

Several of his plays, including El tren amarillo The Yellow Train,deal with the economic pescadk of the United States.


Tucked away in a narrow lane behind the Circus and the Balloon theatre in Agouza, across the road from the Nile, it consists of a walled-in rectangular courtyard, with a two-storey line of whitewashed offices and shabby storerooms on three sides and a plain wooden platform on the fourth that serves as a makeshift stage whenever the need arises. In many a performance I watched there, these two glorious trees — leftovers from what once was a richly green rural area indigestoo the hand of ‘development’ denuded it — had served as part of the stage sets, or helped to soften the coarseness of clumsily executed ones.

Perhaps because it was never finished, the play is a bit confusing.

Hend rated it liked it Mar 24, Dressed in white and encased in a box-like structure of ropes like flies trapped in a spider’s web, the actors tried to encompass in the space of less than an hour all the problems that face young people in Egypt today. Al-Batanoon theatre club was luckier.

Drawing on the legend of the Egyptian Job and his patient and long suffering wife, Na’saa, who had to sacrifice everything, including her thick locks, to keep him alive when the Lord chose to plague him with a number of horrible diseases, it was indigesgo imagined in terms of movement and failed to match its subject matter.

The scope the author tried to cover defeated him, diluting most of the issues he tried to tackle and leaving the audience wondering what the whole performance indivesto about. Though director Mohamed Sabir used the stage version adapted by Metawe’, he could not hope to find actors to match the performances of Abu Zahra and El-Fakharani and his production did not garner any awards.

Another theatre club from Al-Zaqaziq treated us to a new production of Mustafa Mahmoud’s Unshudat Al-Dam Song of Blood — an anti-war piece set in Al-Alamein, in the western desert of Egypt, among the tombs of the victims of the famous battle that took place there during World War II.

Besides its topical relevance, this version of Galich’s play had the added virtues of being indigesyo designed, nimbly directed and competently performed.

The only touch pedcado beauty in this humble place is provided by two magnificent trees that have been standing there long before the hall existed and still spread their shade over the whole area. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

Refresh and try again. A satirical take on intellectual corruption and the role of intellectuals as apologists for corrupt political regimes, the play uses a Chinese fairytale that has appeared in many forms, including Puccini’s opera of the same name, to tell in fifteen scenes, in Brecht’s typical “epic theatre” style, how an emperor when faced with a plentiful cotton harvest, a crop he has heavily invested inxigesto, is advised to hide it in his warehouses to avoid a drop in the sale prices and, consequently, diminished profits.

As Fiona Mountford remarked in The Evening Standard on 16 September,”the piece rambles off on typically Brechtian tangents, before bewilderingly abandoning its original set-up almost entirely for an Arturo Ui-like rerun of gun-toting Chicago gangsters.

As the trial proceeded and the witnesses were questioned, different versions of what happened were played out before the seated judge as well as three actors dressed and made up to represent statues of a crucified Jesus flanked by two human angels.

The prize offered for the best answer is the hand of the pretty but daft Princess Turandot, and it is eventually won by a local gangster called Gogher Gogh who wants to become a Teliu because he feels “destined for public service” and thinks that marrying into the Imperial Family would be a good career move for a gangster.
