Nadia Fall’s Welcome to Iran at Theatre Royal Stratford East
Ava is a fairly typical twenty-something-year-old Londoner. After the death of her estranged father, she travels to Iran hoping to learn something about his past and her extended family.
While Ava is exploring the rich and layered culture and thriving art scene of this oft-misunderstood country, she finds herself swept into a world of raves, raids and illicit love. This all comes whilst she trying to negotiate family politics, Tehran traffic and the morality police.
Based on real-life testimonials, this new play by Nadia Fall, which she admits would never pass the censors, offers a tender but smart and snappy picture of life in modern-day Iran.
