Little did 19 year old Reyhaneh Jabbari know what her life would be like for the next 7 years, within prison walls, when she agreed to meet Dr. Sarbandi on the 7th of July 2007. Little did she know that she would pay with death, 7 years later, for defending herself against the man who tried to rape her. 07/07/07 is an ensemble piece based on Reyhaneh’s intimate and detailed account of her time in prison.
07/07/07 was created over 6 months using Reyhaneh Jabbari’s written accounts, watching videos and reading up on her case, over the internet. We were able to also get in touch with her mother, with whose permission we went ahead with the process of creating a play that we believe is giving Reyhaneh’s story a voice.
