CAIRO – 15 April 2018: “Sallem Nafsak” (Surrender) play will be performed at the Creativity Center Theater on Friday.

The play is directed by Khaled Galal and staged by the students of the Actor’s Studio, and was considered an opportunity to discover new talents among Egyptian youth. The play has been presented 115 times in a row since its first show in October 2017. Additionally, many critics described it as the best 2017 theater show, as Egypt Today has previously reported.

The two-hour-play focuses on the negative features in the Egyptian community during the recent period. This includes violence against women, terrorist acts under false religious slogans, consumption patterns of households, negative effects of social media and insincere love relations.

These features have been reflected in 13 condensed scenes in the form of sarcasm, mixed with music and dance, giving its actors the chance to showcase their skills.
In a step to encourage talented youth in different fields, especially those that strip youth away from the ideas of terrorism and extremism, President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi invited Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman to watch “Sallem Nafsak” during his last three-day-visit to Egypt in order to highlight new Egyptian talents.

Sisi and bin Salman watched “Sallem Nafsak” on March 12 and strongly applauded the performance, showing their great appreciation for the play, the artists and the director.

At the end of the show, Sisi mentioned that the scene that presented the noblest mission of defending Egypt deeply affected him, expressing his thanks to all the actors and the director.

Sisi remarked that difficult tests are set for youth seeking to enroll in the Egyptian National Academy for Youth Training and Rehabilitation. But, he remarked that he will allow the theater’s cast members to register easily in the academy, as they possess great talents.



He added that Egypt needs honest and sincere people to be at the forefront of the country's building process to be able to achieve the intended objectives. Sisi expressed his thanks and appreciation for the team's dedication and hard work.

“I proudly watched a group of creative Egyptian young people performing in the theater show 'Sallem Nafsak' at the Cairo Opera House,” Sisi remarked directly after watching the play.


Galal previously expressed his great pride in all his students who participated in the play and presented such a dazzling performance, such as Ola Fahmy, Ahmed Tarek, Ahmed Abdel Tawab, Mohamed Hassan, Rehab Ezzeldin, Mahmoud Abdel Lateef and Gamal Abdel Nasser, among others. Galal also thanked Minister of Culture Ines Abdel Dayem and Cairo Opera House Head Magdy Saber.
