Content note: Parifam contains nudity, verbal description and image of sexual violence of a minor, depictions of a woman in labour in prison, mentions of abortion, anxiety, depression, rape, victim-blaming, censorship, and politics. Parifam is not recommended for audiences under 16 years old.

Past and present, memories and secrets, swirl and blend in this powerful new play.

Detached from family and friends, Parifam Mana draws and paints in her private studio in Montréal—a place where memory and inspiration are in a continuous battle. Parifam‘s world is turned upside down when her childhood friend Ramak re-enters her life. Parifam and Ramak grapple with the hidden truths that linger in their past—soon to be revealed in an exhibition on Persian culture at a museum they built together.
