  • Gasping for theatre

     

    Tonight i ventured into an unknown world for me, well more like forgotten I use to attend play when i was back at university but havent been to the underground theatre for a while, so tonight headed to Rawabat theatre and watched a play called Gasping.

    The play itself is pure genius, i am not going to  ruin the details of the plot for you, but what i can tell you its a black comedy take on the idea of abundance of natural resources and commercializing it, like water, food crisis … they even took a take on Oil&Gas versus the automotive industry.  I left the play really thinking about what kind of world we live in? and how much is a person willing to sell their soul for money?

    But all seriousness aside, i couldnt stop laughing, Gasping is brought you by ACT (Alumni Community Theatre)  its a play by Ben Elton, staring Adham Zidan (Philip), Ali Nasser (chief),  Ahmed ‘tony’ Amer (Sandy) and Reem Kadry (Kirsten Carlton)

    Also what the play made me think, more of the experience of heading down to Rawabat next to town house gallery, why dont we as a scene do more of this stuff ?  are we so stuck on our only activity being just partying ? or is there more to life than just partying ? or does both the theater scene and party scene dont mingle ?

    well either way i loved going and am planning on heading down more to see more plays!
