The Egyptian National Theatre Festival started its eighth iteration with a full fare of plays produced during the 2014-2015 season. The festival ran from 4-21 September with 40 performances on fourteen Cairo stages.

This year’s edition was dedicated to the actor Khaled Saleh, who not only had a long and productive theatre career, but supported young actors and the National Theatre festival itself till his last breath. The opening ceremony honored Khaled Saleh, and the late actor Nour El Sherif with short films showing some of their artistic achievements. The ceremony, held at the Main Hall at Cairo Opera House, was directed by Alexandrian director Gamal Yakout.
