Directed by Aryan Rezaee, the play by American writer David Mamet will be online at Tiwall, a social network dedicated to Iran’s theater and music, for Iranian theater aficionados on Thursday and Friday.
The short monolog takes place in a 1930s radio station, in which a prim, sincere, advice-to-the-lovelorn personality answers the letters people have written him about their troubles of the heart.
Hashemi will perform the monolog translated into Persian by Mohammad Monem.
All the money raised by the performances will go to a charity organization supporting female-headed households.
‘Mr. Happiness’ first appeared at the Plymouth Theatre on Broadway in 1978.
Born in 1975, Hashemi holds a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering and a Master’s degree in Directing.
