According to the London daily Elaph, the artist Bushra starred in the musical “Praxa” at the Egyptian Opera House from 19 to 29 July.
The play, set in the city of Athens in 400 BCE, was created by the writer Tawfiq Al Hakim and is an adaptation of a Greek comedy written by Aresto Fines in 390 BCE.
The play is directed by Nader Salah Al Deen and is the first production by the theater group ‘Tytro.’
Bushra plays the role of Praxa, who leads a women’s revolution.
The Athenian women go at midnight dressed as men to change the ruling
party in the Parliament and to give more power to female citizens.

There are 150 artists that performed in “Praxa.”
