About This Project

“The Good Doctor,” a comedy with music by Neil Simon, stands out as a remarkable theatrical piece, showcasing a series of short plays inspired by the works of the Russian writer Anton Chekhov. These plays are ingeniously interconnected by a writer who comments on them, adding an insightful and humorous layer to the narrative. This structure not only celebrates Chekhov’s legacy but also highlights Simon’s adeptness at blending comedy with literary depth.

The production, directed by Hamed Janali, adopted an innovative approach, presenting the play as a playreading with minimal acting. This format allowed the audience to concentrate on the script’s nuances and the emotions conveyed through the spoken word. Janali’s direction brought a unique interpretation to this classic, making it accessible and engaging for a modern audience.

Produced by the Nomad Art Group, the play’s realization was a three-month collaborative effort, culminating in a production that resonated with audiences. The commitment of the team was evident in the seamless integration of every aspect of the play, from its adaptation and direction to the final staging and performance.
