'Barefoot in the Park' Adapted

Theater actor and director Nasim Afsharpour has staged her adaptation of Neil Simon's 'Barefoot in the Park' at Tehran's Nasser Khosrow Hall. 
Afsharpour's play titled 'El Nino' opened on Sunday and will run through March 10 on all days, starting at 7 pm, according to Tiwall (tiwall.com), the website where tickets are available. 
The romantic comedy by American dramatist Neil Simon, 89, is jointly translated by actor, TV presenter and translator Shahram Zargar, 51, and actor and director Ramin Nasser Nassir, 41.
Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word. He is a straight-as-an-arrow lawyer and she is a free spirit always looking for the latest kick. 
After a six-day honeymoon, they get a surprise visit from Corie’s loopy mother and decide to play matchmaker during a dinner with their neighbor-in-the-attic, Velasco, where everything that can go wrong, does. 
Paul just doesn’t understand Corie. As she sees it, he is too staid, too boring, and she just wants him to be a little more spontaneous. Running 'barefoot in the park' would be a start.
Afsharpour has a part in the play. Other thespians are Khashayar Shamshirgaran, Rojan Iraji, Mahyar Eslami and Hirad Mohammadi.
The venue is located next to Molavi Hall on 16-Azar Street, Enqelab Avenue.
