The comedy play Abou Kabsoula has been extended for another 15 nights for the fifth time due to its wild success, Egypt's Artistic Theatre House, headed by Ismael Mokhtar, announced on Monday.
Abou Kabsoula, starring promising young comedian Mostafa Abou-Sriea and directed by Mohamed Morsi, has been gaining crowd appreciation since its premiere in Eid Al-Adha at the Bayram El-Tunisi theatre in Alexandria.
The play is about a series of events that happen to an inventor after he comes up with a capsule that gets rid of hunger.
Abou-Sriea, who caught the public’s attention after starring in a number of recent TV shows and films, also wrote the lyrics to the play’s songs, which were composed by Karim Arafa and arranged by Ayman El-Turki.
The play's cast is mainly from an Alexandria theatre group, and they include Hassan Abdel-Fattah, Alaa Zeinhom and Nourin Karom.
