t THE VEIL TOURS
2008-2009


The Veil is a fictionalized biography of a Persian woman, Khanoom, who, through twists of fate and her perseverance, came to witness, from a unique perspective, many of the political and social changes that shaped the 20th century. It was written by Shahin Sayadi, based on Khanoom, by Iranian novelist, Masoud Behnoud, and the play was developed in association with Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia and Neptune Theatre.
