Winner of Audience Choice Award for Best Play at the 2016 Iranisches Theatre Festival in Heidelberg, Germany, we are delighted to present this critically-acclaimed play in Edinburgh for the first time.

Mimi's Suitcase is the true story of a teenage girl who returns to her native Iran from Spain in the midst of the 1980s Iran-Iraq war. This involuntary uprooting awakens engaging questions about identity, language, culture and homeland in this hilarious and heart-warming universal coming-of-age journey of resilience, humanity and, above all, hope.

The play will be performed in English, Spanish and Persian with English subtitles.
