The play also participated in many Arab and international festivals, and received remarkable interaction from the audience from attending these festivals. This play handles the story of the sailor (Khamis), who refuses to run for the presidency of the island approved by the ruler, due to the lack of an heir, and the events revolve through a dream seen by the sailor (Khamis) and his presidency of one of the islands, but he rejects this dream because he is convinced of the need to stay away from the world of power and politics, due to the great responsibility that needs to be exercised to special skills and specifications. The theatrical performance also reflects the prevailing Arab culture’s view of politics and power.
