In an all-girls high school in 1987 Iran, eight years after the revolution that permanently altered the
course of the country’s history, we see the path of three young people’s lives change as they are impacted by the rules forced upon them, the revelation of the many secrets held by their families, and the Iran-Iraq war. Their secrets lead to an entanglement with the school principal, a woman who is also keeping many secrets of her own.
The Forgotten History of Mastaneh tells the story of the reality of so many young women in Iran, women who are striving for normalcy and are finding their inner truth and freedom.
Written and directed by Naghmeh Samini. Co-produced by Seda Iranian Theatre Ensemble and Seattle Public Theater. Performed in Farsi with English subtitles.
