Mohammad called the play very good and professional, with talented actors and a brilliant performance.“The play beautifully portrays and connects people’s struggle during the Pahlavi regime and their active presence during the war, highlighting the national hero Borunesi. I really enjoyed the play,” he said.“I believe this play showcases the sincerity which is rooted in our culture and beliefs. This play shows that we must live according to our beliefs. I believe this play can help make culture for the society,” he said. He said that the topic of the war is quite varied and added, “Those who have good experience can produce new and attractive plays with the central theme of the war.” The war represents the issue of defending our land, consequently, all Iranians are interested in this topic,” he stated. He next met and talked with the director of the complex, Ebrahim Galledarzadeh. He said that the pandemic and the theater lockdowns have caused great damages to the actors and if the closure continues they even face more serious damages.
