One night in Teheran we went to a theatre play called “Walk on wet pavement”. Sadegh and Pari had received an invitation by a member of the company and we joined them. The play was in persian: which means that I could not understand the plot very well, even though actors were very skilful (and well known). However, the final scene was easy to get: (almost) everyone died. Including the good hearted characters.
Implicitly the play was a strong critic to the values of the Iranian society (as strong as a critic can be in such a regime). Almost a challenge to the two portraits of Khomeini and Khamenei hanging on the two sides of the stage.
After the show we waited for the actors to go out and we greeted them. They seemed happy to have an international public. 🙂
