Comedy on Marital Relations

The one-act play ‘Follow Me’ directed by theater director Kourosh Soleimani, on the issue of marital relations, will be staged from June 22 in Tehran.
The comedy is based on the 1962 play ‘The Public Eye’ written by English playwright and screenwriter Peter Shaffer (1926-2016). In 1972, it was adapted into an English film titled ‘Follow Me’, whose script was also penned by Shaffer, Mehr News Agency reported.
The story is about a middle-aged accountant who is suspicious of the “unaccountable movements” of his young wife, and hires a private detective to follow her.
The script deals with psychological aspects of a marital relationship. It has a positive and humorous approach towards the relationship between married couples.
One of the reasons Soleimani got interested in working on the text was “I felt that our society needs such issues to be addressed in a comic language,” he said.
Soleimani has been rehearsing with the three-member cast for the past month. Masoud Mirtaheri, Vahid Aqapur and Maryam Dannadeh will perform in the play.
