‘Case 2002’ depicts Egypt after seven thousand years
Egyptian singer Ali al Haggar is currently rehearsing a new play entitled The Case 2002 on the stage of the Floating Theater in preparation for opening in the middle of July as part of the state owned theater summer season programs.
The play is produced by the Comedy Theater headed by the Egyptian actor Riyadh al Khouli. Costarring in the play along with Haggar are Rogina, dancer Safwa, Yousef Daoud, Hasan al Dib, Ahmed Aqel and others.
The play was scripted by Walid Yousef and directed by Ashraf Zaki and is set in a show, comedy and singing style.
Haggar told the London-based daily al Sharq al Awsat, “Hasan, history teacher, is a unique personality who dreams of change and is affected by the pharos history to a great extent. He believes that the civilization, which left two thirds of antiquities in the world, deserves to be quested to reveal its secrets and know their reasons. As a result of the effects of the pharos history on him, this character dreams of going 7,000 years ahead instead of going back to the Pharos era.
Hasan lives in the year 9002 to see what the 2002 generation leaves behind them. The big paradoxes between what the Pharos left and what the bewildering generation leaves will emerge. The play will feature 9 old songs composed by three composers including Farouk al Sharnoubi, Amir Abdel Majeed and Ahmed al Haggar and I will participate in six shows.” -- Albawaba.com
