Theater director Siavash Bahadori Raad has staged his adaptation of “Oblomov” at Iranshahr Theater in Tehran.
The 90-minute play, written and directed by Bahadori opened May 14 and will be onstage till May 31. The director has written the play on the basis of “Oblomov,” the second novel by Russian novelist Ivan Goncharov (1812-1891), first published in 1859, ILNA reported on its Persian website.
“It is a daring task to alter and adapt a literary work into a theatrical play. Fortunately, Siavash Bahadori had enough wit and nerve for it and rose to the social needs of the time,” said film and TV series director Hassan Fat’hi who was present on the opening day. 
“Needless to say, the adaptation is not irrelevant to our social and historical situations. I hope the work will serve as a warning against Oblomovism or passive daydreaming,” Fat’hi added.
