The Forty Rules of Love, theatrical performance impressed the attendees including faculty members and students. The performance mainly relies on the novel authored by the Turkish writer Elif Şafak. The novel is based on projections on the idea of conspiracy and extremism in our contemporary age. The events of the novel take place after the fall of Abbasid Caliphate State at the hands of Mongols, however; the novel conveys messages emphasizing that our current age is only a little bit different from the age of 13th Century. The theatrical performance ،The Forty Rules of Love, reflects a human case that is highly pure as well as sheds light on ideas revolve around how human can live with love and tolerance instead of violence and hatred.
