“Prisoner of Tehran” is a spoken memoir within a landscape of movement, telling the true story of Marina Nemat’s life as a political prisoner in Evin prison as a teenager. This show unveils the themes of social justice, oppression, freedom and hope completely based on Marina’s bestselling book of the same name.

“…the narration, the movement, and the spaces between the two create a powerfully emotional experience for the audience. The piece is simply spectacular.” -Kate Kostandoff, Bur Oak Secondary School, Markham ON
