Suddenly Slaughter is the Khakpours’ re-interpretation of Iranian playwright Abbas Nalbandian’s work Suddenly, This God Lover Died in the Love of God, This God Slain Died by the Sword of God.

Nalbandian’s plot centres on a communal house in a poor neighbourhood of Tehran and, because of its political text, has only been performed once.
