Drawing inspiration from a story by one of the greatest romantic poets in Persian literature, Nezāmi Ganjavi (1141-1209), and produced by Mojgan Maghooli, theatre group Shoroom perform Shirin in the form of physical theatre and dance, with no dialogues, which makes this play highly emotional and suitable for the international audience.

In this extraordinary performance, love expresses itself through its own language, the language of silence, mystery, and inner tension. Nezāmi is considered the greatest romantic epic poet in Persian literature. 

This play ranked second by people's choice at the Fifth Persian-English Independent Theatre Festival in London, in 2018.
