TIMEPIECES: A Moment of Silence

Tuesday, July 25 at 7pm

Join us for this one-night-only FREE play reading!

Shiva wakes up to find she has been asleep for three years. During that time, the world around her changed drastically. It’s Iran in 1980 and she has just slept through the Islamic Revolution. For the next ten years, Shiva continues to sleep for years at a time. Each time she wakes up there’s a new change in her country that she has to try to grasp. Meanwhile, a playwright creating Shiva’s story begins to receive phone calls threatening her life.

One of the most beloved Iranian plays of the last 30 years, A Moment of Silence is a surreal, poetic, and surprisingly comic meditation on Iran’s turbulent history.

Featuring Owais Ahmed, Isabel Alamin, Victoria Nassif, Jonathan Shaboo, Hadar Suzman, and Shadee Vossoughi. Stage managed by Caitlin Body with dramaturgy by Yasmin Zacaria Mikhaiel.

The evening also includes a brief post-show discussion to give you a chance to reflect on the piece and the themes and issues it presents.
