‘3 Versions of Life’ on Stage

‘3 Versions of Life’ on Stage

A play written by French playwright and novelist Yasmina Reza and directed by Iranian theater director Saedeh Lorestani is currently on stage at Konesh-e- Moaser (Contemporary Action) Theater in Tehran.
‘Three Versions of Life’ was written by Reza in 2000 and the Iranian dramaturge Alireza Mirzaeinejad has edited it for the current performance, Mehr News Agency reported.
In the one-act play, also known as ‘Life x 3’, the audience sees two couples trying to make a success of one evening despite the fact that they neither like nor respect one another. The show presents three versions of the same story, acted out with the same characters and with a similar plot but with radically different psychological shading, accidental events and consequences.
“The play is about the confusion of mankind and his desire to achieve inessential things in life which in reality prevent him from establishing a simple and essential relationship, like understanding family members’ needs,” Lorestani said.
The cast includes Saghar Azizi, Behzad Javdanfard, Nazanin Karimi and Misagh Zare.
Several plays by Yasmina Reza, 57, whose father is Iranian and mother Hungarian, including ‘Art’ and ‘God of Carnage’ have won awards and have been translated and performed in several languages.
The play is on stage through December 30 at the theater located at No. 542, between Sarparast and Fariman Streets, Taleqani St. before Felestin Sq.
