TEHRAN – Iranian director Mahyar Eslami plans to stage Woody Allen’s play “Old Saybrook” at Tehran’s Divare Chaharom Theater on May 5.

The absurdist play is about Max, a writer who has left his play unfinished. Characters in the play finally get bored and a fight breaks out between the characters and the writer.   

Farid Rahmati, Elmira Saremi, Mahyar Eslami and Nilufar Parsa are the main members of the cast for the play, which will be on stage for about one month. 

Earlier in March, director Sajjad Qatei staged a reading of the play at Shahrzad Theater in Tehran.
