The drama is based on the Second World War and its impact on the Gulf region.
Kuwaiti television and theatre stalwart Hayat Al Fahad has announced her new upcoming Ramadan drama series, Sanawat Al Jarish, Arabic for Years of Al Jarish.
The drama focuses on the years of drought faced in the Gulf region during the Second World War (1939-1945).
Dropping the poster of the show on her Instagram account, the war setting features a line from a poem by Mahmoud Darwish, a Palestinian poet and author, which reads: “The war would end, the leaders shake hands, and that woman will remain waiting for her martyred son.”
Al Fahad captioned her post: “Our next journey, God willing, will takes us into the past with the series ‘Sanawat Al Jarish’. We want to tell you a story based on reality and to tell our children and grandchildren that the lives of our ancestors were never easy and that wars are a tragedy for humanity.”
The series Sanawat Al Jarish was written by Muhammad Al-Nabulsi and the idea of Hussain Al-Mahdi, directed by Manaf Abdel and supervised by Youssef Al-Ghaith, and the stars participating in the work have not yet been revealed, alongside Hayat Al-Fahd.
Sanawat Al Jarish will be released next year in the holy month of Ramadhan.
