Levon Haftvan to stage “The Yalta Game” in Toronto

September 13, 2017

TEHRAN – Iranian director Levon Haftvan will perform Irish writer Brian Friel’s “The Yalta Game” at the Fairview Library Theater in Toronto, Canada on Friday.

The play will be produced by Haftvan’s Lemaz Productions and Artists Management in Canada.

“The Yalta Game” is based on Anton Chekhov’s 1899 story “The Lady with the Lapdog”. It is about a married man who is on holiday alone, leaving his wife and family behind in Moscow. While away, he meets a married young woman and they start talking together, but that is only the beginning.

Vahid Rohbani and Helia Imani are the main members of the cast for the play, which will be performed in Persian.

Haftvan staged the play in Tehran during April and May 2016.
