Two plays from Sudan and Tunisia are scheduled to be performed today and tomorrow as part of the Luxor, Capital of Arab Culture initiative.

The plays were selected from those that participated in the 15th Arabic Theatre Festival, titled ‘Arab Identity, Creativity with no Boundaries’ and held between 21 and 29 April.

Both plays will be performed at Luxor Culture Palace at 7pm.

The Sudanese play Sabeya Bila Zakera (A girl with no memory) by Elfa troupe directed by Abbas Hayek will be staged Wednesday.

The Tunisian play Has El-Khoyout by Doroob troupe, directed by Emad El-Weslati is set for Thursday.

In March, Tunisia passed the torch of the ‘Capital of Arab Culture’ onto Luxor, Egypt.

The Tunisian city of Safakis was selected as the Arab Culture Capital in 2016.
