German Iranian playwright Mehdi Moradpour’s Reines Land, nominated for the Munich Prize for German Drama, traces the story of Tara, a pregnant Middle Eastern woman seeking political asylum amidst crippling bureaucracy and crumbling relationships. Translated from German to English with the same poetic language that won Moradpour the prestigious Exil-DramtikerInnen-Preis, a German theatre award for outstanding playwrights-in-exile, PURE LAND pits a torturous past against an uncertain future with sobering effect. Presented in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut Chicago.
