Abstract

Bahram Beyzai is among a number of Iranian playwrights who, together, created a New Wave in 1960’s Iran which had close ties to the historical and cultural background of Iran. Coming from the age of the New Wave filmmakers and playwrights, Bahram Beyzai can today be considered one of the most prominent and decisive figures at the forefront of Iranian modern drama; from his roots in Iranian drama, to the point where his works have been performed in Europe and North America. Beyzai, now 75, is a leading scholar of both religious and secular studies of the history of Persia and its literature and theatre.
