Summerless

Amir Reza Koohestani / Mehr Theatre Group

Parents are waiting at the school gates. A father starts a slightly optimistic monologue about his children’s future in the country. Hesitant, the others do not join in. They hold a dialogue with their thoughts on their own plans and childhood dreams. Amir Reza Koohestani has delighted the international scene for a number of years with work for theatre of rare subtlety and precision. His plays reveal the stories of men and women in contemporary Iranian society. Stories that are written between the lines, by dint of silences, and return to the past to escape brutality, the absence of ambiguity and oblivion. A true master of what is left unsaid, in his latest creation, Summerless, Koohestani weaves an intergenerational story that scrutinises, with change or repetitions, the possibilities of a better future.
