Veteran Theater Director Honored

The play ‘Memories and Nightmares of a Clothes Keeper of Mirza Taghi Khan’ opened at Vahdat Hall on January 12, coinciding with the 77th birthday of its well-known director, Ali Rafei.
The show was attended by a large number of theater enthusiasts including the Minister of Foreign Affairs Mohammad Javad Zarif, who honored Rafei for contributing 50 years of his life to Iran theater, Mehr News Agency reported.
Zarif said “Iranian art is the best means to present the cultural richness of the country to the world.”  
The play unravels the life story of Mirza Taghi Khan (1807-1852), also known as Amir Kabir, who was chief minister to Naser al-Din Shah Qajar (king of Persia) for the first three years of his reign, and one of the most capable and innovative figures in the Qajar Era (1785-1925).
Rafei, 75, is a veteran theater and cinema director and stage designer. He holds a PhD in theater from Sorbonne University.
The play will run through January 20.
