SUMMARY

Experience the shocking, beautiful true story of Tahirih, a Persian poetess and the first female suffrage martyr. Captivating theatre starring Delia Olam, heightened by evocative live music. Using Tahirih's original poetry penned before her execution in 1852, Olam embodies other key players in this unknown true story: the father, the friend, the servant and the executioner. Stunningly presented, you will be inspired by Tahirih's brave example and feel astonished that you have never heard of her before now. A boldly elegant cross-artform theatre production. #madeinadelaide
