Dream Hope Wish Desire, an original Documentary Theatre play created by a visiting professor and Theatre students, opens at AUC ‘s Falaki Theatre on September 13th for a four night run. 


Documentary Theatre is non-fiction.  It uses the verbatim words of real people taken from interviews as the primary source of the play text. Documentary Theatre also relies on other source material including newspaper and magazine articles, reports and published web material.

 

This play is a result of a project called Collaborative Documentary Theatre Making in which AUC Theatre students interviewed 60 people, representing a cross section of the Cairo population, in order to better understand their hopes and dreams. Interviews with individuals were recorded and transcribed and edited together to create the play script. The play is in English and Arabic and tells the stories of several taxi drivers, a shisha café and a group of students struggling to learn more about the different communities and people within their city.

 

Tickets on sale beginning, August 30th, 2017.
