As part of the Christmas festivities the American University in Cairo’s (AUC) Alumni Community Theatre (ACT) is holding an interactive children’s play, entitled The Invention, written by Brad Gromelski and co-directed by AUC theatre professor Laila Saad and theatre alumni Amina Khalil, in several venues around Cairo.

During the performance a mysterious invention has to be assembled before the villain Kalibad destroys it. The play is fun and lively, and the children get very excited when they have to guess what the invention does, as well as helping the actors assemble it.
