The play “Puzzle,” written by and starring collaborators Barzou Arjmand and Ehsan Karami, follows four characters from four critical periods in Iranian history—the 1950s, 60s, 70s, and 80s—each of whom is a storyteller at “Parkway Square” in Tehran. These characters are related to each other without knowing it—albeit in different times and places. A poet (based on the real-life story of Bijan Targhi), a soldier, a bus driver, and a Gypsy musician, narrate for us important events of Iran’s society during these four decades. The show is full of music, singing and comedy, and romantic and tragic moments, that are narrated on stage in the context of Iranian society.
