The Death of the King

Co-Produced by Modern Times Stage Company and The Theatre Centre

Critically-acclaimed Iranian playwright, Bahram Beyzaie wrote The Death of the King shortly after the Iranian Revolution. Beyzaie’s play tells the story of an ordinary family charged with treason, accused of killing their nation’s ruler. The execution gallows are being prepared while a miller, his wife and their daughter, embark on a desperate bid to reveal the truth about their despotic, yet desperate, leader. This highly-inventive and physical production explores the vulnerability of ordinary citizens struggling under the extraordinary circumstances of their political fate. Directed by award-winning artist Soheil Parsa, this production should not be missed.
