مسرحية صح النوم

الشعب فرحا بإنتظار القمر الذي سيشع الليلة بدرا .  الليلة يستيقظ الوالي (أنطوان كرباج)  ويزور الساحة مع مستشاره زيدون (نصري شمس الدين) وقائد حرسه (وليم حسواني)  .  الأهالي ينتظرون قدوم الوالي الذي يختم ثلاث معاملات كل شهر كي لا يتلف ختم الولاية الأثري ويعود بعدها الى قصر النوم .  يطلب المستشار من الأهالي أن يرفعوا معاملاتهم بأيديهم .  قرنفل (فيروز) ما زالت تنتظر ختم المعاملة التي قدمتها منذ ستة أشهرلبناء سقف منزلها الذي تهدم في الشتاء الماضي .  هي تعيش في ظل الشمسية التي ترافقها دائما وتود اصلاح السقف قبل قدوم فصل الشتاء.

يطلع القمر وعند حضور الوالي الى الساحة تعلو الهتافات ترحيبا به .  يختم الوالي كعادته ثلاث معاملات ويشعر بالتعب والنعس فيأخذ غطّة على كرسيه في الساحة ويغادر الجميع باستثناء قرنفل التي اختبأت خلف الكرسي.  تسللت الى الصندوق وسرقت الختم وختمت معاملتها وبدأت تختم معاملات الأهالي .  ختمت كل المعاملات باستثناء معاملة شاكر الكندرجي (ايلي شويري) التي كانت على خلاف دائم معه , ومعاملة ليلى (هدى حداد) التي لم تقدمها.

يذهب الوالي الى قصر النوم ليغفو طوال الشهر ويحضر مستشاره الى الساحة ويتفاجأ بأن سائر المعاملات قد ختمت وظن أن الوالي قد ختم للجميع . تختم قرنفل معاملة ليلى وترمي الختم في بئر مهجور . يستيقظ الوالي ويندهش للتغيير الذي رآه في الساحة .  عندها يكتشف أن الختم قد سرق من الصندوق ويلوم مستشاره الذي لم يقم بواجب الحراسة كما يجب .  يطلب المستشار من عموم الأهالي البحث عن الختم .  تقع الشبهة على قرنفل التي نفت في بادئ الأمر سرقتها للختم .  لكنها عادت واعترفت للوالي بأنها ختمت للأهالي البسطاء المنتظرين إمضاء معاملاتهم.

يحكم الوالي على قرنفل أن تربط على ظهر فرس وحشية لتهشل فيها طول العمر , لكن الأمر يتطلب ختم والختم ضائع .  عندها يسألها الوالي عن مكان الختم وتعترف بأنها رمته في البئر وطلبت أن تربط بحبل كي تسترجعه . تسترجع الختم الذي غسلته الماء وغسلت كل الخطايا العتيقة والذنوب ورجع نظيفا وجديدا .  عفى الوالي عن قرنفل وسلّمها مهام ختم المعاملات وعاد الى النوم.

About Nasri Shamseddine

Nasri Shamseddine (1927 - 1983) The Lebanese singer Nasri Shamseddine was born on June 27, 1927 in Joun, a small village in Mount Lebanon. He inherited his vocal talents from his mother and started singing at the age of six. He took part in choirs and plays at school, and he taught himself how to play the oud. Nasri finished high school, and then started to teach. However, because he associated everything with music, it was without surprise that he was fired for singing to his students in class.Throughout the years, Nasri continued to try new jobs, but lost them due to his love of music. In 1950, when he was twenty-three, Nasri traveled to Egypt, which at the time was the musical center of the Arab world. There, he worked on his vocals and also became more familiar with playing the oud. Upon his return to Lebanon, Nasri applied for a chorus position at a radio station. This was where he met Fairouz and the Rahbani brothers, and started working with the famous singer. The duo sang together on radio stations before heading to the theater. They performed together in 1957 in Baalbak as well as in the Cedars of Lebanon. In 1967, Nasri and Fairouz started their annual musicals at the Picadilly Theater in Beirut. He also performed in Beyt Eddine with Sabah, Wadih Al Safi, Majdala and many others. Still though, Nasri remained unsatisfied, so he took on a solo career as well as major roles in three movies. Additionally, in order to be recognized internationally, he traveled to Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and North and South America. He declared that his favorite country was Brazil. Nasri adhered to the Lebanese dialect in his songs, which was very attractive to the common Lebanese public who were mostly from the countryside and mountainous regions. However, Nasri’s singing career was an uphill battle. Even though he grew up in a small town and his surroundings were not very supportive of his career choice, his determination helped him find the success he desired. His career as a singer, performer and actor continued for thirty years. Today, , his songs, movies, and plays are still broadcasted all over the world. Nasri Shamseddine had always dreamt of dying on stage and his dream became a sad reality when he suffered an aneurism on stage in Damascus, Syria on March 18, 1983. Nasri Shamseddine is a legend, with a unique voice that has no equivalence. He is considered to be one of the greatest Arab singers of all times, and he will never be forgotten.
