This week, the critically-acclaimed theatre comedy show Déjà vu by Sufi Performing Arts Troupe is taking back the stage of Al-Hanager Theatre until Sunnday.
"We are introducing a situation comedy for everybody from any segment [of society]… discussing the dilemma of getting involved in solving the issues of other people," director Ahmed Fouad told Ahram Online, adding that the show took him over a year to adapt from its original script by his Swiss friend Olivier Chachyari.
A protagonist who finds himself engaged in solving people s problems is a plot to which anyone could relate. Add to this a cast that has grabbed viewers’ attention, attracting dozens of artists and experts since its early November premier.
The cast includes Tamer Nabil, Rahma Ahmed, Basma Maher, Ahmed Elsalakawy and Mohamed Youssef, all of whom are known for appearing in many TV, cinema and theatre hits.
"From issues of the local neighbourhood to global problems, we have no choice but to be involved somehow," said the renowned director.
The crew, which spent over six months preparing, also includes Ahmed Amin, who designed the stage décor, stylist Marwa Ouda and music producer Mohamed Abdallah.
The Déjà vu experience is at the Cairo Opera House s Hanager Theatre this week for a $2 ticket that you can book before 7pm.
