Al-Attal added that the committee praised all the performances made by the teams and institutions and the accompanying effort and training in order to show them in a way that conforms to the terms and conditions of the festival, despite some technical observations, but the desire to present an interesting and elegant work was clear to the honorable audience.

She indicated that the committee found some performances that might lack practical experience in some of the vocabulary of the theatrical performance, but they are undoubtedly courageous attempts in which there are many controversies.
