The Cultch Presents
Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre and Medusa Theatre (Vancouver)
By Aki Yaghoubi
April 04–14, 2024
Past and present, memories and secrets, swirl and blend in this powerful new play.
Detached from family and friends, Parifam Mana draws and paints in her private studio in Montréal—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 on Persian culture at a museum they built together.
The courage of Iranian women takes centre stage in this world premiere by Canadian-Iranian playwright Aki Yaghoubi!
