Welcome to Iran
From 18 April – 16 May 2020

Ava is a twenty-something Londoner. Following the death of her estranged father, she journeys to Iran in search of his past and her extended family.
Exploring the rich culture and thriving art scene of this oft 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 testimonials, this new play by Nadia Fall (Home, Dara) offers a tender and witty snapshot of modern life in Iran.
The cast includes Moe Bar-El, Nalân Burgess, Souad Faress, Karina Fernandez, Nicholas Karimi, Serena Manteghi, Maimuna Memon, Isabella Nefar, Kareem Samara and Joplin Sibtain.
