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.

About The Director: Nikta Sabouri has finished her B.A. in Theatre-Directing in Tehran University in Iran and her M.A in Theatre Theory and Dramaturgy in University of Ottawa in Canada. The focus of her Master's thesis was on intercultural Theater, and she directed an excerpt from the medieval play The Mystery of the Passion by Arnoul Gréban and explored the results of staging the medieval French mystery play using elements borrowed from the aesthetics of Ta'zieh, a traditional Iranian form of theatre. Nikta has directed more than ten plays and participated in multiple productions as assistant director, actress, and stage manager in Iran, Canada and the U.S.
