Letter without a Stamp

Letter without a Stamp (1988) was a production by Teater Dybbuk

Letter without a Stamp was a monodrama about the encounter between a Norwegian language teacher of Jewish descent and an Iranian refugee who has been tortured by the fanatical regime which has assumed power. In facing her own pain, the teacher finds that the two have more in common than she initially believed, that they can help one another overcome a profound sense of loss.
