Upintheair Theatre Presents a Reading of Aryo Khakpour's Translation of Abbas Nalbandian's

Suddenly, This God-Lover Died in the Love of God, This God-Slain Died by the Sword of God

The residence of a communal house in a poor neighborhood in Tehran, Iran are stirred up when a new tenant enters the picture. He is single, educated and seemingly rich. He becomes the subject of the neighbors envy and hatred. Iranian passion play meets the Canadian psyche.
