Aeesh-Tahmasebi Couple Performs Armenian Play

A celebrated Iranian actor couple will play an Armenian play at Tehran City Theater in August.
Acclaimed actor Farhad Aeesh, 64, together with his spouse Maedeh Tahmasebi, 60, will play ‘Arsen,’ a work by contemporary Armenian dramatist Karine Khodikian, 60, Khabaronline reported.
‘Arsen’ is the story of Arsen, a young boy and Annette, a middle-aged woman on one day. It is translated into Persian by Iranian-Armenian author, literary translator and theater director Andranik Khechoumian, 62, who has served as a cultural bridge between Iran and Armenia. A product of Sepanta Theater Group, the play is directed by Behzad Sediqi, 48, head of the Association of Playwrights at Iranian Theater Forum (ITF). The play is his adaptation of the original Armenian work.
The upcoming event is the fruit of a memorandum of understanding signed in 2015 between ITF and the Writers Union of Armenia according to which plays from both sides are translated into Persian and Armenian, analyzed, criticized, published and performed.
 Arsen will open August 4 for a month. Film actress Khatereh Hatami, 34, also has a role in the play.
