|Tehran theater to host performance satirizing Qajar court||
TEHRAN – A troupe, which will be directed by Rahmat Amini, is scheduled to perform “Jijak Alishah”, a play by Zabih Behruz (1891–1971) which satirizes the Qajar court.
The play will be staged at Tehran’s Sangelaj Hall in February 2015, the Persian service of MNA reported on Saturday.
Amini directed a reading performance of “Jijak Alishah” with a large cast at Tehran’s Hafez Hall in June 2013.
“The text of the play will be shortened and the play will go on stage this time with a small cast,” Amini said.
Hossein Kiani will rewrite the play and Hassan Varasteh will collaborate as assistant director in this project, he added.
Amir Karbalaizadeh, Farzin Mohaddes, Tinu Salehi and Abolfazl Hajalikhani are the main members of the cast.
“The play follows a style, which has elements from modern Western drama and ru-hozi,” Amini previously stated in a press release.
Ru-hozi is a form of Iranian traditional theatrical performance.
