As we wrote before the holidays, OneLight Theatre is taking their production of The Veil to Tehran's Fadjr International Theatre Festival, but unfortunately, due to the federal arts program cuts, they’re going to need some financial help. This weekend they’re performing four shows at Neptune's Studio Theatre (1593 Argyle) to raise some cash. Tickets are only $17 and can be purchased online at onelighttheatre.com or by calling 425-6812. You can make a donation there too.
In case you didn’t catch it the first time, or need a refresher, The Veil was adapted by artistic director Shahin Sayadi from a novel by exiled Iranian writer Masoud Behnoud. The story follows Khanoom, a Persian princess, across Iran, Turkey, Russia and Europe through a lifetime of personal and political history.Links:
