About the Show
Written by Mohammad Rahmanian
translated by Soheil Parsa
Directed by Nikta Sabouri
Interrogation is a play in two parts written by the prominent contemporary Iranian playwright, Mohammad Rahmanian. The play is about two young Algerians—a boy, Naeem, and a woman, Safiya—who have lived through and participated in the anti-colonial revolution in their country. The revolution ends in victory, but when the party is over these two characters have to expound upon their horrific actions and deal with their deranged lives.
