The first play was written in Arabic in 1847. There had been no Arab theatre before then and this book explains the many reasons why this was not so. The author also discusses the conditions that later assisted the emergence of the art of theatre, with reference to the indigenous forms of drama in Arabic culture, then goes on to describe the work of seminal dramatists Ash- Shaikh Ahmad Abu Kjalilal- Quabbani, Ya'qub Sannu, M. Uthman Jalal and Marun An- Naqqash.
