The Language of Wild Berries Debuts as a Radio Play!
We’re thrilled to announce that Naghmeh Samini’s play, translated and directed by Torange Yeghiazarian, will be released in fall 2020 as a Radio Play. This US premiere will include a special listening party followed by Q&A with the artists.
The past, present, and future collide in the touching story of a couple’s annual road trips to the Caspian Sea in this rare glimpse into the lives of contemporary Iranians.

MENA Theater Makers Alliance is Launched!
We are proud to announce the launch of the Middle Eastern and North African Theater Makers Alliance (MENATMA), the first national alliance devoted to MENA artists and stories in the American theater. Last year’s MENA Theatre Artists Convening, held during ReOrient 2019, served as a pivotal gathering to formalize this growing and vibrant artistic community.
