Ali-Naqi Razzaqi is the writer of the play, which will be performed by the Blue Light Theater Group, a public relations team announced on Sunday.

The play will star Ali Omrani and a cast of nine other actors, including Majid Tafreshi, Mahbubeh Mojtahed, and Elnaz Rezai,

"The troupe intends to attract the attention of Iranian expatriates in Canada to our native cultural backgrounds and art heritage," director Zhubin Ghaziani said.

"It will be really inspiring if watching the play pushes them to refer to Sadi's Bustan and Gulistan following their departure from the theater," he added.

"The hardship of living in a new country causes Iranian expatriates to distance themselves from their native culture and art," he lamented.

Katayun Feiz will use Persian paintings by Farah Osuli to design the set of the play, which will be produced by Parvin Sarabadi.
