The piece, which had first opened on April 14, is scheduled to have a number of performances on Saturdays at Shahrzad Theater, the total number of which has not been announced yet.
The play borrows its name from the renowned work of 12-century Persian poet Nizami Ganjavi. Nizami’s Leyli and Majnoun is a narrative poem based on a semi-historical Arab story about the 7th-century Bedouin poet Qays ibn Al-Mulawwah and his ladylove Leyli bint Mahdi.
Dorri’s play, set 60 years ago in Iran, is a love story between a simple writer who comes to Tehran and falls in love with an actress.
