Prof. Hanan Kamel praised the faculty’s theater team, which presented a harmonious and integrated show of technical aspects in terms of the quality of writing, directing, and the acting performance of the team, and the quality of the technical components of the show, such as lighting, sound, decoration, and music.

The show embodied the idea of ​​multiple possibilities that lead to one end, as a character was presented without a head, so that there would be multiple interpretations and different events that are far from logic around it, and to show the bad side of each person.


The name "Bedlam" refers to the game that consists of the cube, which was named after its inventor, and consists of thirteen pieces in the form of cubes (twelve of which are pentagonal and one is four-cube) with the aim of assembling these pieces to form a cube measuring four small cubes for each of its sides, and reaching to a final symmetrical and complete shape.

28 male and female students participated in the acting performance.
