The Empty Seats (play)

In a city in the Middle East two prostitutes are on trial.  While prosecutor tries to prove that they are guilty, they defend themselves. One of the prostitutes has been taken out from her city when she has been a child and her city has been destroyed by an earthquake. The other one has been a poor child working for a family and has been raped over and over. They tell about their lives and persuade the court that they had no choice but to be prostitute and if prostitution is a crime why the seats of the men who have participated are empty in the court?

By the way the language of the author (Mahin) is Persian.
