Directed by Kiarash Rost, the play will have Taha Mohammadi, Mohamadreza Heydari, Abouzar Mousavi, Shima Khosheghbal, Mehdi Mousavi, Atieh Shabani, and Sana Mirzaei in the cast, Mehr reported.

In the play, two men are together in an office. One is a police inspector, who has summoned the other who is an informer. A shady conversation ensues between the two men, and little by little, the secrets of a circuit are revealed. And it is not necessarily the man who one might think is the best placed and better-informed who, in the end, will win over the other.

Jean-Claude Carrière (1931–2021) was a French novelist, screenwriter and actor. He was noted as a frequent collaborator with Luis Buñuel on the screenplays of the latter's late French films. He received an Academy Award for best short film for co-writing “Heureux Anniversaire” (1963), and was later conferred an Honorary Oscar in 2014. He was nominated for the Academy Award three other times for his work in “The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie” (1972), “That Obscure Object of Desire” (1977), and “The Unbearable Lightness of Being” (1988). He also won a César Award for Best Original Screenplay in “The Return of Martin Guerre” (1983).

Celebrated filmmaker Majid Majidi is the producer of the Persian adaptation of “An Ordinary Circuit,” which will remain on stage until May 9 at the City Theater.
