Collection of Beloved Plays, on the first day of Eid

Yango Play also has a lineup of classic plays ranging from comedy to political satire for the whole family to enjoy this Eid al-Fitr.

Al-Wad Sayed Al-Shaghal (الواد سيد شغال)

This classic comedy is one of the most successful plays of Adel Emam, which has become part of Eid rituals. Emam plays a fugitive Sayed seeks refuge with his uncle who works as a cook for a wealthy family. When the family’s daughter gets divorced for the third time, the family enlist Sayed’s help to marry her as a mohallel so she could reunite with her husband. Sayed gets to know the aristocracy and begins a comedic comparison between the world of the rich and the world of the poor in Arab countries.

Al Zaeem (الزعيم)

In this political satire, Zeinhom (Adel Emam) is a simple man who can’t hold down a job for too long, but there is a strong resemblance in looks between him and the dictator of his country. This resemblance is used to make a movie that portrays the evilness of this dictator. When the real dictator dies, Zeinhom is forced by the government to pretend to be that same man in fear of a revolution against the tyrant.

Shahed Ma Shafsh Hag (شاهد ما شافش حاجة)

Sirhan Abdel Baseer (Adel Imam) is an inoffensive, peaceful man who is an actor on a children’s television show. On the show, he plays the rabbit, a character that starts to affect his personal life. He becomes distant from reality and his problems to the extent to which he kills his neighbor who works as a dancer. Headed by detective Ahmed Abdel Salaam (Amr Hariri) the police begin an investigation of the murder. The police raid Sirhan’s apartment, and during investigations, pressure and force him to testify in court even though he never witnessed the incident in the first place.

Sayidaty Al Gamila (سيدتي الجميلة)

In his quest to find a beautiful woman fit for the king’s eyes, Kamal (Fouad El Mohandes) encounters a spirited girl named Sodfa (Shwikar), a pickpocket. Captivated by her untamed nature, he decides to refine her manners and teach her the etiquette required to grace the king’s presence. This humorous journey of transformation combines adventure, romance, and wit, keeping everyone entertained until the end.

El Eyal Kebret (العيال كبرت)

Ramadan El Sakry (Hassan Mostafa), blessed with three sons, a daughter, and a devoted wife, sees his world unravel as his marriage disintegrates. He contemplates a fresh start by remarrying. His son Kamal (Ahmed Zaki) stumbles upon his plan and alerts his siblings, Sultan (Said Saleh), Atif (Younis Shalebi), and Sahar (Nadia Shoukry). Together, they try to foil their father’s remarriage and mend their family, only to realise the monumental challenge it poses.

Al Motazawegoon (المتزوجون)

In this cult comedy classic, the poor but optimistic Masoud (Samir Ghanem) marries the aristocratic Lina (Sherine), challenging societal norms and her father’s wishes. They navigate the stark contrasts of their lives, from humble beginnings to the brink of wealth, under the threat of disinheritance. The play explores the nuances of marital dynamics, class disparity, and the evolving attitudes within 1970s Egyptian society.
