“Heart of a Dog” by Mohammad Yaghoubi

January 19 @ 12:00 am - January 30 @ 12:00 am EST

Heart of a Dog

Written by Mohammad Yaghoubi From NOWADAYS THEATRE

About the show: The English premiere of Heart of a Dog is a comical adaptation of Mikhail Bulgakov’s classic Russian novel. Staged twice in Iran, the piece struggled with boundaries and censorship; now, in Canada, Yaghoubi, far from the harassment of the censorship bureaus, can pursue his creative vision in directing this piece any way he sees fit. In this third approach, the most crucial change is that the main character (the dog) will be performed by a woman who would not be allowed to do so in Iran, where a woman’s body is political.
