a theatrical production by Permoveo Productions exposing a travesty of the Iranian legal system. Haram Iran tells the story of two boys coming of age, and struggling with their identities as Arab Iranians, and as typical teenagers longing to discover their place in the world. Ayaz Marhouni and Mahmoud Asgari are two fifteen year old boys caught in a compromising position, publicly humiliated and tried in the Iranian courts. The story follows the boys' passions--one for literature and the other for sports--and both for each other. The play takes the audience into the complexity of their relationship, and then the horrifying ordeal of being tried by an unforgiving Iranian legal system which misinterprets the Muslim law of Sharia.
