Mahshid’s short story about her family’s journey out of Iran was made into a play which was made available for streaming in the fall of 2020. The show was produced by The Roustabout’s Theatre Company and featured Jessica John as young Mahshid.

“No Way Back is the true story of one family’s desperate escape out of Iran in 1981. We watch through the eyes of ten-year-old Mahshid as her country is cast into revolution, turmoil, and war. Her family’s secret escape out of the country will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last scene.”
