the veil


The Veil
From the palace harem to occupied Paris, experience the incredible journey of a Persian princess and "see her world from behind The Veil.

"The Veil is a sweeping, epic drama that flows as fluidly and rapidly as a good movie." (Chronicle Herald)

OneLight Theatre has developed an original adaptation of Behnoud’s epic novel, Khanoom in association with Neptune Theatre and Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia. The staging of The Veil will transport the audience on Khanoom’s journey from her childhood in the Qajar palace, to war-torn Europe and back to her childhood home, forever changed by war and revolution.

"It holds its audience in the grip of a different culture and the strong voice of its women. " (Elisa Bernard)

Join four generations of women as they struggle to find their identities, independence and a place for themselves in a rapidly changing world. This original play, written and directed by Shahin Sayadi, will play in two Canadian cities:

October 30-November 18, 2007
Neptune Theatre Studio – - 902.429.7070

November 28 – December 9, 2007
Harboufront Centre Studio – -416.973.4000

" The Veil, directed by Sayadi with a strong ensemble cast and a keen eye for visual imagery, is, so far, one of the best shows this fall for its thorough development and artistry." (Chronicle)
