Darvag presents the Iranian master playwright Bahram Beyzaie's Death of Yazdgerd, a poetic and political work exploring the
cruel and tragic dynamics of a class-based society. The text is translated by Manuchehr Anvar, and will be directed by Evren
Odcikin: War is raging. King Yazdgerd's body is discovered in a run-down mill in the Iranian desert. Charged with murder, the
miller, his wife and his sickly daughter must tell their story to the commanders to escape torture and death. Who killed the
King? Was Yazdgerd indeed the revered God-King, or a puny, immoral man caught in the destructive whirlwind of his times? Echoes
of Greek tragedy haunt this drama of a family exposing its dark secrets in a time of war and poverty, weaving a web of mystery
tied to the fate of a nation under attack facing an unknown future
