TheatreInSearch and Persian Cultural Center Present: Shahre Ghesse (City of Tales), A play by Bijan Mofid.
In the Iranian musical play Shahre Gheseh (City of Tales), an elephant walks into a town, falls down, breaks his Tusk, and asks for help. The town's other animals including a fox, a monkey, and a parrot debate what to do next as the elephant waits and voices his opinions. As written by acclaimed Iranian playwright Bijan Mofid, Shahre Gheseh is a parable about tradition and the way a strange visitor can or can't survive in a society with fixed ideas.
It's a painful tale of characters whose realities are inhibited by enforced practices, values, and superstitions. Created in the narrator's mind's eyes, the characters are accustomed to their own world of trickery and deception.
