My Brother's Country was a four hand play that told the story of Fereydoun Farrokhzad and his sister Forough, Iran's Sylvia Plath. Fereydoun was a singer, poet TV producer and the closest thing Iran has had to an out gay icon. He was found brutally murdered in the small bedsit he lived in as a Refugee in 1992. The play was about sexuality, religion and the birth of the modern middle east.
My Brother's Country was co-commissioned by Theatre in the Mill, ARC Stockton and The Lowry. It was supported by Bradford MDC and Arts Council England.
