The Leopard Changes Its Spots by Iran's renowned theater director Ali Nargesnejad is to be staged at the Liege Festival in Belgium.
The Iranian drama tells the story of a couple struggling with their newborn baby's blood disease. The baby has a hope of surviving the disease if it receives three blood transfusions from the mother, which in turn would endanger her life.
Scheduled to run from February 8 to 10, the play depicts the psychological relationship of the mother with the child, and the wife with her husband.
The Leopard Changes Its Spots is to compete with plays from various countries including US, Brazil, Sweden, Russia, Italy and France.
Belgium's innovative Liege Festival is to run from January 19 to February 17, 2009, and will be held jointly in the capital city of Brussels and the eastern city of Liege
