Majnun lacks something. This defect is a part of its essence; an inherent, authentic emblem sealing its origin. Authenticity suggests honesty, especially when it is unconscious and unintentional. Majnun was first designed for and debuted on the “Where were you exactly 9 years, 3 months, and 20 days ago?” theatre set; The play was written and directed by Seyyed Farshad Hashemi; a 4-piece monologue, with each one telling the story of one mental patient and his struggles with the society. Majnun went on stage over the course of the show’s run in winter and spring 2019 at the Neauphle-le-Château Mansion.

The name of “Majnun” is taken from “Leili o Majnūn” is a narrative poem composed in 584/1188 by the Persian poet Niẓāmi Ganjavi based on a semi-historical Persian story about the 7th century Nejdi Bedouin poet Qays ibn al-Mullawah and his ladylove Layla bint Mahdi (or Layla al-Aamiriya).
