Dorfman’s Death and Maiden in Dowlatshahi’s Surrealism

Periodontist, painter, author and set designer Maziar Shahzad-Dowlatshahi has staged his debut play which is based on a work by Argentine-Chilean-American playwright Ariel Dorfman.
Dowlatshahi’s play is titled ‘Requiem for a Girl,’ a surreal and psychological adaptation of Dorfman’s ‘Death and the Maiden,’ Honaronline reported on its Persian website.
The play will be on stage till mid-May at Paliz Theater House in Tehran. Dowlatshahi has adapted, designed and directed the play.
“For my first theatrical experience, I decided to base my work on a well-known play I could relate to.” the director said. After selecting Dorfman’s work, he rewrote the plot and dialogues of the original play to make them closer to his mindset, but the overall structure is the same.
