× THE ADVANCE THEATRE FESTIVAL

Live play readings every night. Jan. 30 - Feb. 3, 2023 (Week 1) Feb.16 & 17, Dil Ka (Week 2)

Advancing the radically inclusive stage. Play Readings live on Stage!

Performance Notes

Parifam Playwright: Aki Yaghoubi Director: Panthea Vatandoost

Detached from family and friends, Parifam Mana draws and paints in her private studio—a place where memory and inspiration are in a continuous battle. Parifam’s world is turned upside down when her childhood friend Ramak re-enters her life. Parifam and Ramak grapple with the hidden truths that linger in their past—soon to be revealed in an exhibition at a museum they built together.

Playwright: Aki Yaghoubi Director: Panthea Vatandoost
