|Tehran theater to reflect Camus’ “Misunderstanding”||
TEHRAN -- Albert Camus’ play “The Misunderstanding” will be performed at the Se-Noqteh Theater in Tehran on July 21.
Mohammad-Mehdi Shahi will direct the play, which will be performed by Farzaneh Zinati, Sahar Sotudeh and Yasmin Fahbod.
Sometimes published as “Cross Purpose”, the play was written in 1943 in occupied France.
It is about a man called Jan, who has been living overseas for many years. He returns home to find his sister and widowed mother are making a living by taking in lodgers and murdering them.
Since neither his sister nor his mother recognize him, he becomes a lodger himself without revealing his identity. Ultimately, his mother and sister kill him.
Shahi is scheduled to play the role of Jan in the drama, which has been translated into Persian by Khashayar Deihimi.
Renowned Iranian writer and translator Jalal Ale-Ahmad translated the play into Persian for the first time in 1949, just six years after its French publication.
