Bahman Forsi (Persian: بهمن فرسی‎) (1933-) is an Iranian playwright who was born in Tabriz but immigrated to Tehran when he was only four years old. At first he worked for newspapers and wrote several poems, short stories and reviews, and then he started to write plays. His first play was “the vase” (1960). He was under the influence of European absurdist theatre, and therefore tried to use a completely new language in his plays, a language which was so new for Iranian drama in the 1960s.[1]
