"Arash: A Play Reading", written and directed by Bahram Beyzaie

With Mojdeh Shamsaie and Mohsen Namjoo

Program and Performance in Persian

Arash is one of the most enduring stories of Iranian mythology. A few artists have offered their own renditions of this remarkable tale - the story of a man who offers to end the bloodshed between Iran and its neighbor, Touran, and instead uses the power of his arrow to determine the border of the two countries. Arash is one of Bahram Beyzaie's earliest writings, and though it has been performed numerous times, in numerous countries and languages, it has never been directed by Beyzaie himself. We are proud to present a stage reading of this singular work, with two of their generation's most acclaimed artists, Mojdeh Shamsaie and Mohsen Namjoo, in the leading roles. Each performance is approximately seventy minutes, and will be preceded by brief introductory remarks by Bahram Beyzaie. Please note the program and performance will be in Persian.
