Iranian actress Elnaz Shakerdoust and actor Amir Jafari have been set to costar in a play on stage.
The play titled ‘Gom-o-Gour’ (literally meaning to very lost) by Amir Mohandesian will go on stage from November 12.
The director said the main theme of this realist play is birth, highlighted in contrast with death. It is set in a cemetery.
Kaveh Ebrahim, Alireza Zare-Parast, Fardin Shah-Hosseini, and Samaneh Aqa-Zamani are also in the troupe.
The play will be on stage until December 15, 2017, in Tehran’s Iranshahr Theater Hall.
Born in 1984, Shakerdoust became interested in acting and later received a degree in Theater from Tehran University.
When Kioumars Pourahamd was looking for an actress for his ‘Ice Flower’ in 2004, he met Shakerdoust and immediately selected her for female leading role of his film.
Less than one year, Shakerdoust acted diverse roles in four movies. Her acting skills in ‘Singles’ and ‘Who Killed Amir?’ made her nominated for two Iran Cinema Celebration Awards for the Best Actress in a Supporting Role.
