‘Words, Words, Words’ on Stage

A play titled ‘Words Words Words’ directed by Alireza Taheri is currently underway at Naser-Khosrow Theater Hall in Tehran.
Originally written between 1987 and 1993 by American playwright David Ives, it is part of a collection of one-act plays titled ‘All in the Timing’, Honaronline quoted Taheri as saying.
The play is about Kafka, Milton and Swift, three intelligent chimpanzees kept in a cage under the “experimenting eye” of the unseen Dr. Rosenbaum, a scientist testing the hypothesis that three apes hitting keys at random on typewriters for an infinite amount of time will almost surely produce a given text (a variation on the infinite monkey theorem). In this context, the “monkey” is not an actual monkey, but a metaphor for an abstract device that produces an endless random sequence of letters and symbols.
The show’s title is a reference to a line from Shakespeare’s play. The performance comprises the ape characters humorously confronting and conversing with each other in order to understand the purpose of the exercise given them.
“Although clearly a comedy, the play differs much from production to production, generally depending on the actors and the director’s interpretation of the characters, said Taheri, adding: “In the story, Swift drives the action, with his rebellion to Rosenbaum and his experiment, with Milton acting as either a friend or antagonist trying to convince him to go along.”
Alireza Dast-Afkan, Arman Kalhori, Shaqayeq Hamzeh-lou, Elham Sadeqi and Omid Ziaoddini are among the young actors.
The 50-minute play will be on stage until June 24 at the venue located on Enqelab Street.
