Students of EMU are Very Lucky

Cicek Dilligil noted that this is his first time at EMU stating The university has a great campus. Students studying here are very lucky. Regarding the play Dilligil said: I love the character I portray. Sam Bobrick always creates great female characters. My character became a truly great one after the adaptation of Levent Tulek. All women can find elements of themselves in my character. We are going to perform Bavul abroad as well. After Cyprus we are going to go on to Europe. Don’t just like plays, go and watch them because plays will be kept alive with your support.
