"Chess with the Doomsday Machine" to be staged in Canada
An adaptation of "Chess with the Doomsday Machine" by Habib Ahmadzadeh will be staged in Canada by a Canadian theatre institute.
IBNA: According to Soureh Mehr publications, the novel's publishers, some two years ago The Chronicle Herald daily presented a report about the decision of "Onelight theatre" institute for staging an adaptation of the Iranian novel which was themed on Iran-Iraq's war.
According to the institute's website, Chess with the Doomsday Machine is Shahin Sayadi’s original adaptation of Iranian author Habib Ahmadzadeh’s novel of the same name.
The story takes place in the early months of the Iran/Iraq war and focuses on the experiences of Isa, a young Abadani soldier defending his hometown. He has been chosen to assist in destroying the enemy’s “Doomsday Machine”, an advanced radar system that was able to hone in on Iranian artillery emplacements almost as soon as they fired. This was initially devastating to the Iranian defense operations and it became a priority to locate the radar system so that it could be destroyed.
The book was rendered into English by Paul Sprachman and released in the U.S by Mazda publication.
