Haké neswén

This is a great play, I should attempt to watch. I didn’t know that such plays would ever take place in Lebanon! But hey, what can I say else then: I am pleasantly surprised. Of course the woman behind this work, Lina Khoury, had to struggle for 18 months to get with censorship, but what surprised me is that she took her work to the Minister himself, and he Helped her. Wow. That’s cool.

In the play the genitals are given a nickname Coco, which is quite funny, because that’s a very common nickname in Lebanon, my own cousin’s nickname is coco. Haha I can’t wait to tell her.

P.S.: The play was inspired from an American one: The Vagina Monologues. I never watched it or heard of it, but it sounds interesting.

the word "coco" is very used by parisian people who work in cinema business, it doesn't mean the same, it's the way they call each other in talks exemple : tu as le "look" coco !

by the ways, I got a son who work in that business, I can't imagine him saying that word !

coco = minou by us !

I asked my husband to go with me to watch "The Vagina Monologues", he refused.
Can't blame him!It is like him asking me to watch a space movie :)
