About the Performance:
A man goes on a pilgrimage to Mecca leaving his wife in his brother’s custody. The brother tries to rape his sister in law. She manages to escape, he accuses her of adultery and she is to be stoned to death. She runs away. On the way three men attempt to do the same thing. She escapes again and builds a house of worship; all four men become blind, paralyzed, and come to her house of worship.
The original story is in verse and so is this play. The play is performed with the techniques of Tazieh which are singing and story telling.
