Well it was, I think one of the best covered plays ever. Even the BBC were advertising it. Of course, there was only exclusive viewings at Cairo, so I caught a flight there.
Weirdly enough, there were no people on board, so I moved to first-class.
When there, there was already a group outside. I watched through the whole thing, however a policeman took me away and put me in a hotel room, possibly because they were getting ready for the second part.
Now, I'm a Spoof writer, not a pyrotechnician, but I think the effects were amazing. The fire looked real. I got to commentate the make-up artists, cause the blood and the bruises on the actors looked real. Why, even the weaponry was real! The tanks looked real too! There was a lot of product placement in there too, which I hated. There was a CNN van, a BBC van, a Reuters van, and lots of other things too.
I must say, this is one hell of a show. I think the play keeps on going, really innovative stuff. I just turned on the radio and there... 'coverage' of the riots. Amazing!
For some reason, the policeman didn't show me back to the open-air theatre again. Must have forgotten, I guess... there were a lot of people there.
I decided to go out of the hotel the next morning to witness the play again. Somehow, this looked a little different from the yesterday's performance. The writers must be pretty good to change the script every viewing.
However, some of the actors weren't very good, so maybe this was an indie production.
Well, that concludes this review of the Egypt Riot play. Next time, I'm going to watch Pirates of the Somali Seas at an exclusive screening in an Addis Abba cinema.
