A performance titled Green Light will be staged at Hanager Theatre at the Opera grounds in Cairo on 17 October.

The play is a series of monologues that tackle social issues, inspired by old Egyptian monologues, and performed by children.

Green Light is a year-old project benefiting "homeless children at risk of danger" by providing them with art and theatre training to help them psychologically.

The monologues are directed by Sherif El-Kazzaz, written by Sahar Gharib, Hala Noaman Yasser AboulEnein, and Amr Khales, who is also one of the trainees.

The performers include Manal Yousry, Yehia El-Mahdy, and Jana AbdelKarim.

Alongside the play, some of the children’s artistic products, drawings and ceramics will be on sale, with proceeds going to support them.

Tuesday, 17 October at 7pm
Hanager Arts Centre, Cairo Opera Grounds, Zamalek, Cairo
