The Forgotten History of Mastaneh-Female Voices in Farsi (Persian)

“Voices from Iran, heard many years later”

The Seda Iranian Theatre Ensemble performed their first play, The Forgotten History of Mastaneh, Friday night to a sold-out audience. Unsurprising, as Iranian playwright and director, Naghmeh Samini, hosts a number of impressive writing credits to her name and her work has been staged internationally. The stars of the evening were lead actor Mozdeh Rahmanzaei whose powerful performance was honest, genuine, and charismatic, and fellow actor Newsha Farahani, who gave us an intimate portrayal of female friendship.
