    In ‘One Night in Iran’ the dialogue revolves around an Emperor sized bed – a perfect metaphor for the emotional and legal barriers separating our two adulterous lovers. We never hear their names, but can testify to their intimacy and strangeness, passions and doubts. Nabil Stuart’s passivity & soft tones help convey a certain ineptness at duplicity which may sentence both characters to death; whilst Amiera Darwish exquisitly conveys the rage and defiance at a faith which entraps her with it’s hypocrisy. The lovers’ faith triumphs the hour, but we leave the theatre sadly uncertain for their future. (97 words)
