Performance in Stanford: "Autumn Dance" follows three tormented Iranian women experiencing exile...

Autumn Dance, written and directed by Shabnam Tolouei, follows three tormented Iranian women experiencing exile, even while living in their own country. Bita, a journalist, and Mojdeh, a prostitute, are both imprisoned in Iran's infamous Evin prison. The third, Yekta, lives in exile in Paris. The simple elegance of the play allows the audience to be transported from Tehran to Paris, to uncover the connection between these three women.
