ABOUT THE SHOW

“English Only.” 

That’s the mantra of Marjan, an English teacher in Karaj, Iran struggling to prepare her four students to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language. 

The exam has life-changing implications for each classmate, but between the word games and show-and-tell sessions, one student seems set on derailing the lesson plan. 

With wit, wisdom, and compassion, award-winning playwright Sanaz Toossi’s new comedy uses language as a lens to explore identity, heritage, and community.
