The play “For the Ones With Iron Helmets” is underway at Tehran’s Mehregan Theater from May 2-18. 
Written, directed and performed by Pejman Abdi, the play, staged for the third time in Tehran, is about the absurdity of war, ISNA reported.    
It tells the story of three soldiers from two war-torn countries that are stuck in a ditch. While they defend their reasons for conflict, the appearance of an angel changes the event.
The antiwar comedy was first staged at Maah (Moon) Theater Festival in 2011 and won prizes for best playwright, director, actor and actress. Three years later in 2014, it was performed at Entezami Theater Hall.
