Wish You Were Here by Sanaz Toossi
April 8 - April 16
Williamstown Theatre Festival will present Wish You Were Here, a world premiere by Sanaz Toossi. Nikki Massoud, Marjan Neshat, Nazanin Nour, Artemis Pebdani and Roxanna Hope Radja star in new audio performance in their 2021 season, available on Audible starting April 1.
Nazanin (Marjan Neshat) and her friends are on the brink of adulthood. As they prepare for a wedding, outside their living room the Iranian Revolution is growing as it threatens to alter the course of their lives.
Set over the course of 14 years, Sanaz Toossi’s timely world premiere play, directed by Gaye Taylor Upchurch, shines a light on the potential of friendship in the relentless aftershocks of political upheaval.
