Red Sea Governor Ahmed Abdallah announced an agreement to invite a theatre production in the eastern governorate every month. 

The initiative will infuse the theatre-deprived governorate with art activities and create a more dynamic link with cultural movements in other Egyptian cities that have well-established theatre companies.

The project comes in cooperation with the Theatre House (Beit El-Fanni Lel Masrah), a national theatre body headed by Fetouh Ahmed and operating under the Ministry of Culture.

The announcement came after Abdallah attended the performance of Ghaybouba (Blackout) at the culture palace of Hurgada last Sunday and Monday.

The play stars well-known film and theatre actor Ahmed Bedair, who voiced his appreciation of the warm reception in Hurgada and expressed his desire to present more shows in the Red Sea region.

After the performance, Abdallah presented Bedair with an honorary Governorate Shield.
