Beneath the Veil

August 24, 2009

My television guest tonight Mary Apick, an award-winning Iranian actress from before the Iranian Revolution, is still a household name in Iran. Today she is an American actor and also a director, producer, and human rights activist.
Mary Apick’s play, Beneath the Veil, showing one night only at the Kennedy Center on October 8, explores the role of women in Islam and Islam in women’s lives.
