Exile to Paradise (English) – A Play About Ridvan by Bahman Rahmatian

This one-man performance by Bahman Rahmatian, brings to life the events surrounding the Ridvan declaration in 1863, by depicting four characters: The Governor Namiq Pasha, General Sir Arthur. B. Kemball (the British Consul in Baghdad), Nabil-i Azam, and Mirza Asad’u’llah Kashani.

Mr. Rahmatian plays all four characters himself, and he filmed it in his home in Bucharest, Romania, as he decided to do the play while in self-isolation due to the global health crisis.

The play can also be found in Romanian here: Exil spre Paradis (Româna)
