TEHRAN.(Iranart) – Celebrated Iranian stage director Mohammad Rahmanian plans to focus on the life story of Iranian war veteran Ali Khoshlafz in his next project.
The play will be performed at Tehran’s Vahdat Hall during Ramadan, which will be in May and June this year.
The play is based on Khoshlafz’ memoirs “When the Moonlight Was Missing” written by Hamid Hesam and published by Sureh-Mehr in 2015.
Khoshlafz, whom the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, called “a living martyr”, passed away from chemical injuries he suffered during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war in December 2017.
Rahmanian is the writer and director of several acclaimed plays including “Fans”, “Interview”, “Cho’s Manifesto” and “Bridge”.
