In 1992 Iranian popstar and refugee Fereydoun Farrokhzad was found brutally murdered.

The case was never solved.

An investigation into this iconic murder and an investigation into the nature of investigation.

In a world of murder mystery podcasts, Wikipedia and an Internet that presents everything in the world as knowable.

Fereydoun Farrokhzad was the Middle East’s greatest popstar of the 70’s, think Tom Jones or Freddie Mercury. By 1981 he was a refugee: working in a German grocers. Six months before being found brutally murdered he performed to sold out audiences at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

An exciting new collaboration with Sydney Riverside’s National Theatre of Parramatta
