The Good Woman of Tehran Based on The Good Woman of Setzuan, written by Bertolt Brecht Adaptation and direction by Soussan Farrokhnia

The play follows a young prostitute, Soussan Khanoom, as she struggles to lead a life that is “Good” according to the terms of the morality taught by the Gods and to which her fellow citizens of Tehran pay no regard without allowing herself to be abused and trodden upon by those who would accept and often use her goodness. Her neighbours and friends prove so brutal in filling their bellies that Soussan Khanoom is forced to invent an alter ego to protect herself: a male cousin named Mr Firozy, who becomes a cold and stern protector of Soussan Khanoom’s interests. The play implies that economic systems determine society’s morality.

Presented by London Independent Iranian Community Artists.

This performance will be in Farsi with a projected English translation.
