A New Dress for Mona: Abridged One-Act Version

A play by Mark Perry

"A country in revolution, A holy place in ruins, A dream of three dresses, 16 year-old Mona is finding out the meaning of love. Shiraz, Iran 1982. Fanaticism runs rampant in the streets, and Mona, as a Bahá’i – a member of Iran’s largest religious minority – is the fanatic’s prime target. One night, she has an important dream. It is a dream of three dresses, each representing a different direction her life might take. In her dream and in her waking life, Mona makes her choice- a choice that will lead her straight into danger’s path. This touching drama for youth and adults is based on a true account and raises fundamental and challenging questions about life, faith and sacrifice for all to consider."
