Based on real-life testimonials, Welcome To Iran, a new play by Nadia Fall offers a tender and witty snapshot of modern life in Iran.

Ava is a twenty-something Londoner. Following the death of her estranged father, she journeys to Iran in search of his past and her extended family.

Exploring the rich culture and thriving art scene of this oft misunderstood country, Ava is swept into a world of raves, raids and illicit love, all whilst negotiating family politics, Tehran traffic and the morality police. Following its Stratford run, Welcome To Iran will transfer to the National Theatre for a limited run.

The story of Welcome To Iran is part verbatim, based on real-life testimonials from young Iranians, and explores the universal themes amongst young people of love, hope and identity.

The play examines how you navigate the rules of family, society and state, whilst coming of age, using original music, movement, poetry and video, inspired by Iran’s rich cultural heritage and thriving contemporary arts scene.
