'Eats, Drinks, Deviates' a new political play by We Lessa For Arts theatre group will open at El-Balloon Theatre on Friday 15 February.

Yakol, Yeshrab, Yenshiz (Eats, Drinks, Deviates) is a political play, presenting the Egyptian youth's struggle for freedom and justice in today's reality. It captures the conflict between the current political regime dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood and the youth who still call for change.

The troupe was inspired and integrated poetry by Arab greats, including Mahmoud Darwish, Jobran Khalil Jobran and Saad Allah Yanous. The troupe also included poetry by some of the performers as well, including Andrew Michelle, Fady Samir, Ramiz Mohei and the director himself, John Milad.
