Theater director Fariborz Karimi is to stage two plays at the upcoming European theater festivals.

Karimi has prepared ‘I Can’t Imagine Tomorrow’ and ‘Medea’ for festivals in Europe, Mehr News Agency reported.

‘I Can’t Imagine Tomorrow’ written by American playwright Tennessee Williams (1911-1983) is planned to be staged at the four-day 2017 Act International Festival of short pieces, starting June 7 in Bilbao, Spain.

It will then be staged at the Vreme International Youth Theater Festival, June 16-21, in Vratza, Bulgaria.

Ketsenburg International Festival of Student Theater to be held from July 27-August 7 in Bosnia and Herzegovina, will also host Karimi’s play.

‘I Can’t Imagine Tomorrow’ is about a man and a woman challenged by the everydayness of their lives.

The characters named ‘One’ and ‘Two’ as a routine carry out the same evening ritual of card playing and watching the news on TV in an effort to avoid any real confrontation.

One’s physical deterioration and approaching death forces her to prepare for the inevitable. Two resists this change and his consuming fear of losing One leads to an emotional breakdown.

Karimi’s other play ‘Medea’ will be staged at the 42nd International Festival of Monodrama and Mime from June 29-July 2 in Belgrade, Serbia.

Medea is a monologue based on the original play written by tragedian of classical Athens Euripides (480-406 BC).
