Egyptian play Al-Sa'a Al-Akhera (The Last Hour) has been rescheduled to be staged twice on Thursday at The Municipal Theatre in Tunis during its participation in the Journées Théâtrales de Carthage (JTC) theatre festival, taking place between 8 and 16 December.

The show was initially supposed to be staged on Monday at The Arts Hall, but the venue was decided to be unsuitable for the play.

During the 20th edition of the JTC, Sameh Mahran, head of the Cairo International Festival for Contemporary and Experimental Theatre, has been honoured at the event and has expressed gratitude to the organisers.

Iconic theatre actor Abdel-Rahman Abou-Zahra travelled on Monday to Tunisia to be honoured at the event on Thursday.

The Last Hour, which premiered in April, tells the story of the American pilot who dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima during World War II.

The play is directed by Nasser Abdel-Monim and written by Eissa Gamal Eldin. The cast features El-Ghad Theatre actors Sherif Sobhi, Samia Atef, Moataz Swify and Mahmoud El-Zaiat.

The festival will see the performance of 117 plays from 39 countries, with only 11 competing for awards.
