TEHRAN –(Iranart) Iranian director Amir Dejakam plans to stage German playwright Bertolt Brecht’s “The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui” at the Persian Gulf Hall of Kish Island on Monday.
The 1941 play is about the rise of Arturo Ui, a fictional 1930s Chicago mobster, and his attempts to control the cauliflower racket by ruthlessly disposing of the opposition.
The play is a satirical allegory of the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party in Germany prior to World War II.
Sorush Taheri, Tinu Salehi, Bahar Qasemi, Bahram Ebrahimi and Amir Karbalaizadeh are the main members of the cast for the play that will remain on stage until July 3.
The play previously went on stage at Tehran’s Hafez Hall during April and May.
