Description
This play, predicted, over 30 years ago, what has exactly happened in Iraq in the past decade. Most of the Lebanese publishers rejected publishing this play. In 1975, Alkhalil Press published it and sold more than 2000 copies in the first year. The play then staged in Beirut and Aleppo .. (and probably other countries.. as it’s hard to keep track of these things in the Arab world). The play retrieves an image of the false past, with all its bogus ideas and the present that hasn’t learnt any valuable thing from that illusion which has caused the destruction.

Summary
This play, predicted, over 30 years ago, what has exactly happened in Iraq in the past decade.

Excerpt
The play was written in an intensive language that has further enriched the beautifully flowing dialogue between the characters. The protagonist is the witty magician, who challenges the Emperor in his weird and sudden decision to establish justice in his country, only because he is bored of being oppressor for so long.
