    “The Little Black Fish” is one of the most celebrated contemporary children’s stories in Iran. We produced a free adaptation of it by Mehrnoush Alia for the stage because we believe in the power of stories and the importance of producing great art for children. “The Little Black Fish” is a story that has inspired generations of Iranians to dream big and explore new horizons. The play was selected by New Victory Theater for their Artists LabWorks program.

    The story of “The Little Black Fish” is not just an experience, but a revelation. It is about stepping outside the confines of a self-centred life, and about drawing a distinction between the wandering and the stationary. It has a pedagogic value with numerous underlying political messages and shows a path to freedom, equality and justice, with a simple analogy for younger readers to understand.
