|“Saddam” to appear on stage in Tehran||
TEHRAN – The celebrated Iranian director Mohammad Rahmanian will stage a play in Tehran on the former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.
Entitled “Saddam”, the play is on his life, his execution and its aftermath.
“The play a large project and it will go on stage with 80 actors probably in autumn,” Rahmainian told the Persian service of ISNA.
“I planned to stage the play four years ago but it was not actualized. As the play is a big budget project, we need sponsors from the private sector,” he added.
He said that some state organizations announced their support for staging the play. However, he prefers the private sector’s sponsorship.
“I don’t want any state or political issues to be imposed on the play,” he said.
The members of the cast for the play will be the actors, which have previously worked with Rahmanian.
Rahmanian is scheduled to stage “Ballad of Aurash” at the 32nd Fajr International Theater Festival, which is currently underway in Tehran.
His troupe also plans to perform “Last Days of Esfand” in mid March at Tehran’s Vahdat Hall.
