‘Sumiha Fi Suria’ Satires Syrian Political Situation
The Syrian satire comedy play Sumiha Fi Suria (Permitted in Syria) will begin its first features at Sheraton Hotel in Damascus to move later to the public theaters, according to the daily Assafir.
The play’s screenwriters Lokman Dirky (acts also in the play) and Samer al Masri (play director) and a number of Syrian artists including Jihan Abdel Azeem, Rwa’h Yasin, Asem Hawwat and Jamal al Ali performed for one hour and quarter satire shots which are not based on a theatrical script.
The writers depict through the play daringly the real Syrian political situation, which confirmed the orientation of the Syrian Ministry of Culture to raise the ceiling of censorship in the country.
The play tackles the daily Syrian life issues including cellular phones, bad network and corruption in many of the government sectors. It also tackles the influence in appointing officials and other employees and criticizes the security authorities.
The play does not forget Lebanon when it discusses the Syrian political circumstances. In simulating the program “Who Wants to be Millionaire”, the presenter of the program “Who Wants to Suck the Million” asked the rebec player how many the number of intelligence informants in Syria are. After a long thinking, the nomad answers: 17 millions but before the presenter tells him the result of his answers he adds: and three millions in Lebanon. The nomad gets one step higher amid applause -- Albawaba.com
