‘The Yalta Game’ Ready

An adapted play, titled ‘The Yalta Game,’ directed by Armenian-born Iranian theater director and actor, Levon Haftvan, will go on stage from April 13 at the newly-established ‘Konesh-e Moaser’ Theater Hall in Tehran.
Written by Irish dramatist and short story writer Brian Friel (1929-2015) in 2001, the one-act play is based on a theme in Russian author Anton Chekhov’s celebrated 1899 short story, ‘The Lady with the Lapdog,’ Mehr News agency reported.
The play tells the story of a love affair between a Russian banker (Gurov) and a young woman (Anna) he meets while vacationing in Yalta (a city on the south coast of the Crimean Peninsula surrounded by the Black Sea).
The story has been adapted for stage several times and was performed in 2013 at the Platform Theater in London. Earlier, an opera version titled ‘The Lady with the Pet Dog’ was premiered at Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa in 2010.
The poster of the play is designed by Aydin Aghdashloo, Iranian painter, author, art critic and graphic designer. Vahid Rahbani, Shadi Karam-Roudi and Mani Monadizadeh are the cast.
It will be staged through May 20 at the hall, located at No. 542, between Sarparast and Fariman St., Taleqani Ave., Felestin Square.
