                        JEDDAH, 18 July 2006 - A local drama group is 
premiering today its newest experimental production titled "Mercy Bullet," but 
if you are a woman interested in theater forget about it. 

                        Despite hopeful signs authorities of King Fahd Coastal 
City would allow the Saudi Society of Arts and Culture to perform to an 
audience of men and women, no such permission was granted.

                        A few months ago, the group was allowed to show a 
children's play titled "Serenity Land" under an agreement with a local 
entertainment center. However, this children's play was opened up to families 
only. The audience comprised mostly women and children. 

                        Since the group lacks a performance space of its own, 
it usually stages productions at the auditorium of King Abdul Aziz University's 
male section.

                        "We had to readjust the modest stage at the city with 
so many technical equipment to make it ready for the two days performance," 
said Abdullah Bahttab, manager of the group.

                        According to Bahttab, officials at King Fahd Costal 
City had asked for a written request to allow women to attend the event. But 
earlier this week the group was denied permission without explanation. 

                        The new play is written by actor Hael Akeel and 
directed by Othman Fallatah. Amateur actors Ahmad Al-Samman, Hael Akeel, Sajjad 
Hawsawi, Salem Bahamish and Abdullah Al-Solimani are performing in the original 
production. 

                        "Mercy Bullet" will be shown at King Fahd Costal City 
at 9:30 p.m. today and tomorrow. Women are not allowed to attend.
