The play ‘I Can’t Imagine Tomorrow’ will be staged at the ETS Student Competition Festival in the Netherlands.

The festival will be held in Amsterdam from June 19 to 26. Graduates and also college students will participate, said Fariborz Karimi, director of the play, ISNA reported.

The play by Tennessee Williams, an American playwright and author of several stage classics, “is screen-based and the stage setting is experimental. The music, acoustics and design comply with international festival standards.” There are only two persons in the act.

‘Bohny’ group will stage the performance at the opening of the festival along with theater groups from German, Italian, American and the Netherlands. It will be performed twice on June 19 and 20. The Persian dialogues are transcribed in English by Niloofar Amanzadeh. It is the only play to represent Iran.

“Public staging of the play in Iran will pose financial burden for the group,” Karimi said, adding: “I did not try to arrange a public show since Shahr Theater or Hafiz and Iranshahr theater halls, usually are allocated to experienced groups. However we expect more support.”

Karimi has staged two other plays ‘About Safe and Unsafe Recreations’ and ‘Rabbit Hole’ in university theater festivals and the Fajr International Film Festival (FIFF).
