The Marriage of Mr. Mississippi (German: Die Ehe des Herrn Mississippi) is a play by the Swiss writer Friedrich Dürrenmatt. The play was written in 1950, but Dürrenmatt continued to revise it until 1980.[1] It premiered on 26 March 1952 at the Munich Kammerspiele, directed by Hans Schweikart. It was then performed in Chile, Israel, and New York.[2] The play was adapted into a 1961 film with the same title.[3] The Iranian director and playwright Homayoun Ghanizadeh adapted the play in 2016 and staged the new production, Mississippi Dies Seated, at the Vahdat Hall in Tehran.[4]
