Souq Wakif came alive when a group of students staged a 20-minute hilarious play on Saturday.
Five students of Stenden University transformed a spot near the Art Gallery into a diverse talent platform to stage The School of Rioters 2009, a reproduction of the famous 1970s Egyptian play, to send their message across to parents about the new generation’s attitudes.
The play highlighted characters found today in most university classes, such as the nerd, flirt, gangster, class clown, class play girl, plastics, cheerleader as well as the teacher and principal.
Another play presented by the students was based on improvisation. Three topics were chosen to perform on stage without any preparations.
The students also presented English and Arab songs.
Omar Alaa, one of the organisers, told Gulf Times that the students tried to be as hilarious and realistic as they could be.
He explained that the Art Gallery sponsored their charitable show with the proceeds going to Qatar Charity.
