Winter of 88

Winter of 88
Playwright
Mohammad Yaghoubi
Runtime
90 minutes

An award-winning meta-theatrical and autobiographical piece based on the playwright’s traumatic experiences of the Iran-Iraq war. Recently translated from Farsi, this play creates a window into the not-so-distant past; a window to the days when death was just around the corner, and even though many survived death, no one survived the trauma.

This show includes an informal conversation at the end of each performance.

Due to the sensitive content of this show, patrons will be allowed to enter and exit freely during performances.
