Othello in Wonderland and The Mirror-Polishing Storytellers are two post-revolutionary Persian plays by Gholamhoseyn Sa`edi, the prominent fiction writer and best-known Iranian playwright of this century. In these plays, Sa`edi deals with the most vital issues facing the people of his country after the establishment of the Islamic government in Iran. Written in exile in Paris, these plays display a boldness and fearless disregard for censorship. In Othello in Wonderland, which is a fictional case study of censorship, a theatrical troupe tries to stage the Shakespearean play, Othello, with tragic, albeit humorous, consequences as a result of the clashes of views and ideologies of the officials and supporters of the Islamic regime and the secular intelligentsia in Iran. The Mirror-Polishing Storytellers, on the other hand, is an explicitly anti-war play in which Sa`edi presents gruesome pictures of war and its effects on individuals and families. The two plays represent Sa`edi at his best in combining a sense of grim humor with psychological insight into human nature and display his talent as a creative and innovative artist.
