Abu Casem's Slippers

directed by Janet Bentley

Mary Tierney as Abu Casem 

World premiere in an Equity Showcase of an exceptional verse translation by Anne-Charlotte Hanes Harvey, "the best translator of Swedish dramatic literature ever to have lived", the play is the story of a miserly merchant, Abu Casem, who is cured of avarice by hardships he must endure when his shoes are exchanged with the slippers of the Vizier, enlarged with the tale with a charming love story involving three young people: Abu Casem's daughter, the Prince who loves her and the son of a merchant that Abu Casem ruins who brings them together and focuses on the happy outcome in which a miser is redeemed. The play is quite suitable for children and is recommended for ages eight to eighty-eight. Since the stories of Arabian Nights came from India to Persia, director Janet Bentley resolved to cast the play with Middle Easterners as much as possible. The actors are Mary Tierney*, Kevin Vavasseur*, Oliver Conant*, Pooya Mohseniy, Jaya Tripathi, Marcos Sotomayor, John Cencio Burgos and Laksh Midha.
