|Troupe to perform “Iran-Australia” on Iranians’ public jubilance after Islamic Revolution||
TEHRAN – A troupe will be performing “Iran-Australia”, a play on Iranians’ public jubilance on various occasions since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, in Tehran during August.
The play will premiere at the Arasbaran Cultural Center on August 1 and will be running for about one month, director Sajjad Afsharian told the Persian service of ISNA on Tuesday.
The troupe has performed the play once in a workshop named “From Idea to Performance” at the Tehran University of Art, he said.
“I have always liked to work with the youth and support those who have new ideas,” he added.
The title of the play refers to the 1998 FIFA World Cup qualification play-off during which Iran held Australia to a 1–1 draw at home, and a 2–2 draw in Melbourne.
Afterwards, Iranians took to the streets across the country to celebrate the victory.
