Red Dirt, a love story of an Emirati couple and their relationship with other people, makes its appearance on October 2; while on October 3, Fabrication emphasises how daily problems faced by individuals are blown out of proportion in the eyes of the public, potentially appearing harmful to other community members.
A father's emotional battle with his daughter for marrying a man of his choice is the theme of Mud, to be showcased on October 4.
Narrating the story of the struggles of a young girl and her husband, on October 5, Al Jalad will shed light on their survival. Upholding strong moral values, the play depicts how the couple overcomes their troubles with love and trust in each other
The showcase for the sixth edition of the Festival was shortlisted by the Festival's Selection and Supervision Committee, and will be evaluated by a panel of accomplished jury members.
