Popular Iranian actor and stage director Parsa Pirouzfar is to perform 'A Summer Day' at Tehran's Iranshahr Theater this Summer.
Written by the celebrated Polish dramatist and cartoonist Sławomir Mrożek, 'A Summer Day' is an abstract story of love.
Pirouzfar, Reza Behboudi and Sogol Qalatian will act in the play which has been translated into Persian by playwright and director Sepideh Khosrojah.
First published in 1983, 'A Summer Day' tells the story of two rivals, who have unlike natures. One embodies naive hope in the face of constant failure and the other exhibits cynical ennui in the face of copious success.
The two men first compete over whose life is the worst, then over the affections of a manipulative and narcissistic woman who interrupts their suicide attempts to become their mutual obsession.
The Iranian director previously staged 'At Sea' which is another play by Mrożek.
Born in 1930, Mrożek is one of the prominent playwrights and satirists of Eastern Europe. His theatrical works belong to the genre of absurdist fiction, intended to shock the audience with non-realistic elements, political and historic references, and parody. He has published fourteen plays and ten short stories.
Born in 1972, Pirouzfar has a Bachelor’s degree in Painting from the University of Tehran.
He made his cinematic debut in 1994 with the movie ‘Pari’ directed by Dariush Mehrjoui.
In 1995, he took acting courses at Samandarian acting institute in Tehran.
Some of the movies in which he has appeared include ‘Banquet’, ‘Mercedes’, ‘Sheida’, ‘Waiting Girls’, ‘Objection’, ‘A Girl Named Tondar’, ‘The Lucky Bride’, ‘The Unwanted Woman’, ‘Mask’, ‘Absolutely Tame Is a Horse’, ‘Here, without Me’ and 'Closer'.
‘In My Heart’, ‘The Green Journey’ and ‘In the Eye of the Storm’ are among series in which he has played.
Pirouzfar’s performance in ‘Mom's Guests’ won him a Crystal Simorgh for the Best Actor in a Supporting Role from the Fajr International Film Festival in 2003.
