Wednesday 7 October 2020

Golden Thread Productions presented NO SUMMARY: a conversation with playwright Naghmeh Samini livestreamed on the global, commons-based, peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Wednesday 7 October 2020 at 11 a.m. PDT (San Francisco, UTC -5) / 1 p.m. CDT (Chicago, UTC -5) / 2 p.m. EDT (New York, UTC -4).

Golden Thread Productions will launch its new online series NO SUMMARY with a conversation with playwright Naghmeh Samini. One of Iran’s leading playwrights, Samini’s work has been presented across Europe and Asia but she has never been produced in the US. At a time when US-Iran relations are at an all-time low, hearing directly from artists that create in both countries has never been more relevant. Golden Thread will release Samini’s The Language of Wild Berries as a radio play on October 6th. Cast and creative team from the production will join the conversation.
