(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The sultanate's first theatre festival organised by sports clubs began recently at the Higher College of Technology (HCT) in Al Khuwayr with a play by Nizwa Sports Club.
The four-minute play Al Amood (The Pillar) highlighted a growing trend among youth who miss their daily prayers to spend time on their mobile phones. It profiled an Omani youth who is so busy with his mobile phone that he starts missing his daily prayers. His idea of leading a happy life becomes a nightmare when he dreams of dying after missing his daily prayers. He wakes up from the nightmare to find his father in front of him. The youth promises his father that he will never miss his daily prayers, which are considered one of the pillars of Islam.
On Wednesday, Nahdha Sports Club presented Sir al Karak (Secret of Karak) while Seeb Sports Club presented Aljar Qabl al Dar (Putting Neighbour Before Yourself).
Wuhda Sports Club presented Al Hattab wa Alqareen (The Lumberjack and Satan) at Dawhat al Adab School while Ittifaq Sports Club presented Wajhan Lilqamar (Two Faces of the Moon) at the HCT auditorium on Thursday.
