Premiere of Iraj Pezeshkzad's play: The Chest of Damnation Past

Wednesday, Oct 14, 2015 ,

The Chest of Damnation” combines comedy, music, and dance in a play inspired by a tale from Rumi. Some scholars have suggested that the story is in fact rooted in a tale from “One Thousand and One Nights.” It is the tale of a lustful judge and a conniving husband and wife, reimagined in the unique satirical language of Iraj Pezeshkzad (last year's Bita Prize recipient) and brought to the stage by the inimitable Parviz Sayyad.
