The Well, a play written by Alireza Tavana originally in Persian, and directed by Abbas Abolhasani is officially selected to participate at the International Theatre Festival Kerala (ITFOk 2019). It is the 11th edition of this festival, and 13 groups from 6 different countries are selected to participate. Besides Abolhasani Art Group, there is one more theatre group from Iran participating at ITFOK, but The Well is the only show from the province Mazandaran to attend this prestigious festival.
Mr. Abolhasani initially took The Well to the stage in the city of Babol in Mazandaran in both Persian and English at the same time last year. He used the same cast to perform in both languages. They would first perform the English version, and then later in the very day, they would perform in Persian. To the best of our knowledge, this has never been done in the province of Mazandaran or the country as a whole.
Abolhasani Art Group is going to take the English version of the play to the city of Thrissur in the state of Kerala of India on January 19. The group going to perform 3 times on the 20th, 21st, and 22nd of January. The names and positions of the group members are as follows:
