Winter Play Festival: Arabic play

On March 19, a cast of 10 students and three technical crew, directed by Balqees Al-Shorman ’18 and Arabic faculty members made the annual Arabic play – adapted by Al-Shorman from Mohammad Fawzi’s Mama America – come to life in front of a full house in the Lecture Hall. The actors, who were each dressed to represent a different Arab country, put on a loud and lively performance full of slapstick comedy and witty innuendos, using satire to highlight a timely and thought-provoking subject matter – the discord and political conflicts affecting the Arab region. The play was a big hit with a very engaged audience, drawing constant laughs and appreciation for the cast and crew’s stellar performance.
