A new play by Ken Cameron.
The true story of the lone blogger who shook the nation of Iran.
In The Blogfather of Iran a western playwright (Ken) travels to Iran to sit on the jury of an international theatre festival. He falls hard for his translator (Liliane). But she has fallen even harder for a political dissident known as The Blogfather. The Blogfather of Iran is the real-life figure Hossein DERAKHSHAN, an Iranian-Canadian journalist and internationally respected authority on internet journalism who invented the technology that opened up the world of blogging to Iran and much of the Muslim world. On a return visit to Iran in 2009 he was arrested and eventually sentenced to 19 ½ years in Iran’s most notorious prison. But today, after eight years, the government has let Hossein out on parole; his first order of business is to find Liliane.
