Cho's Manifesto

Besides my interests in Mohammad Rahmanian's plays, I admire his courage for experiencing new ways. His latest play, named Cho's Manifesto, is a good sample for his curiosity of new experiences. The play is about Virginia Tech massacre, and tells the story of some actors who try to retell the massacre.
In my opinion it's not one of Rahmanian's top works, although it has some brilliant moments, but the whole play is not great. Maybe it's because of the language - all the dialogues are in English - or the actors - who are not as well as I expected - but the whole idea, which is coming from our traditional plays named Ta'zieh, worth to see it. So if you're in Tehran, I recommend you not to miss this play.
