The Actors Studio, operating under the Artistic Creativity Centre, will present a performance of 'Aina Ashbahy?' (Where Are My Ghosts?) online on 3 April. The performance is being released on YouTube by the Ministry of Culture almost a decade after the show's premiere.
The screening is part of the ministry's 'Culture Between Your Hands' initiative to urge people to stay home amid the country's comprehensive plan to fight the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Directed by manager of the centre Khaled Galal, 'Aina Ashbahy' is a product of the Actors Studio where many of the cast members have become popular stars, including Ali Rabie and Mohamed 'Osos' Usama.
With choreography by Mohamed Mostafa and Diaa Shafiq, 'Aina Ashbahy' tells the story of security guards at a haunted palace that is full of funny ghosts.
The show premiered in 2012 to large success.
Other plays produced by the Actors Studio to be released on YouTube include Sallem Nafsak (Surrender) once attended by VIPs including Egypt's president and Saudi Crown Prince, Baad El-Leil (After the Night).
The initiative is releasing tens of theatre performances, concerts and other cultural events to audiences amid the current shutdown of theatres, cinemas and concert halls.
