Abstract: The Green Lovers depicts the life of many Iranian youngsters who aspire to improve their life conditions in today’s growing world. Leila and Sepehr are the play’s main characters who are drawn from real-life people. The play aims to raise the audience’s critical consciousness by referring to the universal themes of social progression and justice. The afterword that accompanies this script is a critical analysis as well as a personal reflection. The first half scrutinizes the play’s language to clarify how it represents Persian literature and culture. The personal reflection concentrates on the context of the play and explains how The Green Lovers can be considered a hybrid work of art. Also, the personal reflection includes the position of the playwright as a cross-cultural author, and it concludes by stating that the medium of theatre is the best tool to bring about social consciousness.
