Paradise of the Assassins archiveAn adventure story of love, devotion and betrayal. Under the Persian skies, in the valley of the Alburz mountains, Hussain falls asleep with his young love, Zamurrud. And wakes to find a letter perched on her grave. Zamurrud is in Paradise and if Hussain wants to see her again he must join The Assassins. What price is Hussain prepared to pay to reach Paradise? Written a century ago by the famous Lucknow polymath and Communist, Abdul Halim Sharar, this story of the price humans pay for Utopia remains chillingly resonant. Adapted by award winning director Anthony Clark, and told with dynamic theatricality, this engaging, unpredictable story shifts from the humorous to the terrifying.
