CONFESSION | الاعتراف
A play by Abdullah al-Kafri and Wael Kaddour
Music by Abed Kobeissy
"Confession" tells the story of officer Jalal whose services were abandoned by the regime during the years of stable government control, and then was asked to return to service after an uprising in the country. This offer awakens an old desire in him to regain the power he had for a long period, a period that he was trying to forget after the regime abandoned him and after spending years with his nephew Omar, the promising theater director who is preparing a new play based on "Death and the Maiden" by the Chilean playwright Ariel Dourphman, which revolves around an ambiguous encounter between a former prisoner and a former executioner.
