Interpreted on stage by Farian Sabahi, We the Women of Tehran – written in the first person from a female standpoint – illustrates the origins of the Iranian capital and its contradictions, and the rights of religious minorities and women. It showcases women who have played a leading role in various fields, including sports, although all too often they have simply been an element in the propaganda of the regime. This is an animated reading with verses by the great Persian poets and a hefty dose of irony, as a way to smile about complex issues and demolish common stereotypes.
