Egyptian comedy star Mohamed Henedy will continue staging 'Talat Ayam Fi El-Sahel' (Three Days on the North Coast) at the Cairo Show Theatre in 6 October City during the summer season and during Eid Al-Fitr.

Ending 16 years of absence from the theater, the show has broken theatre box office records since its premier in January.

Written by Hatem Hussein, the cast is a roster of today’s stars, and includes Bayoumi Fouad, Ahmed Fathy, Mohamed Sarwat, Maha Abou Ouf, Nada Moussa, Samia El-Taraboulsi and many others.

'Talat Ayam Fi El-Sahel' will go on tour in the Gulf, including in Saudi Arabia, followed by dates in the United States.

A pioneer of comedy in Egyptian movies in the 1990s, Henedy dominated the scene after his breakout hit Saidi Fi El-Gamaa El-Amrikiya (An Upper Egyptian at the American University).

He also starred in plays including Hazemny Ya, Alabanda, and Afrotto.

Cairo Show is also showing Yehia El-Fakharany's successful play 'King Lear' by William Shakespeare at its theater in New Cairo.
