RICH KIDS: A HISTORY OF SHOPPING MALLS IN TEHRAN
Written by Javaad Alipoor (U.K./Iran)
Co-Created by Javaad Alipoor and Kirsty Housley
Produced by The Javaad Alipoor Company
The global gap between rich and poor has never been greater. As the world decays, the spawn of the powerful dance like everyone is watching.
Winner of the 2019 Scotsman Fringe First Award, RICH KIDS: A HISTORY OF SHOPPING MALLS IN TEHRAN is a darkly comedic, urgent new play about entitlement, consumption and digital technology, that explores the ubiquitous feeling that our societies are falling apart.
Combining digital theater and a live Instagram feed, it is the sequel to the award-winning The Believers Are But Brothers, and the second part of a trilogy of plays from Javaad Alipoor about how digital technology, resentment and fracturing identities are changing the world.
