Ava is a twenty-something Londoner. Following the death of her estranged father, she journeys to Iran in search of his past and her culture.
Exploring this often misunderstood country, Ava is swept into a world of raves, raids and illicit love, all whilst negotiating family politics, Tehran traffic and the morality police.
Based on real-life interviews, this new play by Nadia Fall (Home, King Hedley II, Three Sisters) offers a tender and witty snapshot of modern Iran.
Praise for writer and director Nadia Fall:
“Fall’s production absorbs individual testimony into a vivid picture” - The Guardian, on Home
“Pulses with humanity. Fall’s staging is full of beautifully detailed performances” - Financial Times, on King Hedley II
