Lancher 5

Launcher 5’s honest rendition of narrative and characters is its winning card, which drew an increasingly large number of audiences to the theater during the eight months it was staged in Tehran, Iran. They were curious to peep into a dark side of life – particularly soldiers’ lives – that is normally neglected or censored not only in the official media but also in unofficial public discourse. The play’s program acknowledges this negligence by dedicating the performance to the soldiers in garrisons and to “all the seconds which feel like years, the glaring sun of boredom shining on contemplating shaved heads, the sheer loneliness of lookout posts, towers and launchers, the confined spirits in garrisons, and khaki-clad apparitions hanging about towns – those we never see.
