Iranians aghast over ‘Glass’

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian students, scandalized by a production of Tennessee Williams’ “The Glass Menagerie”, said they were still in a state of shock after seeing a man and a woman embrace on stage.

The students said in a letter printed in Jomhuri Eslami newspaper Thursday that they were horrified when an actor and two actresses lit up cigarettes, a public offense during the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.

“Then it got worse — the female and male entered into very vulgar and unbelievable physical contacts,” they said.

“We still had not emerged from shock when an actor and an actress embraced very tightly and uttered a line to the effect that ‘We have to censor the kissing,’ ” the letter said.
