The Javaad Alipoor Company

Things Hidden Since the Foundation of the World


In 1992, Iranian pop sensation and refugee Fereydoun Farrokhzad – sometimes called Iran’s Tom Jones – was found brutally murdered in his home in Germany, only six months after playing to sold out audiences at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The case was never solved.

Join two-time Scotsman Fringe First Award Winner, Javaad Alipoor, for this five-star, interactive show delving deep into the mystery. This witty, fast-paced and cutting-edge production cuts to the heart of the biggest true crime case you have never head of. An investigation into both an iconic murder and an investigation into the nature of the investigation itself.

“A thrilling investigation of the internet.” The Guardian, *****

An amalgamation of images of the performers in the show; a woman playing the cello, a woman wearimg headphones and speaking into a recording microphone, a man with his arms spread wide and looking off into the distances, a man dressed in 70s era clothing with a mustache, a bearded man beside him wearing a beanie and glasses while speaking into a microphone, and a man at the centre of the image, looking straight at the viewer. The image is washed in orange, yellow, and brown tones.
