Nine Parts of Desire is a work so compassionate, so heartbreaking, so soul-shatteringly human, that it promises to change forever the way you’ll think about the women (indeed, the people) of the Middle East. A portrait of the extraordinary—and ordinary—lives of a whole cross-section of Iraqi women, this solo work lifts the veil on exactly what it means to be a woman in the age-old war zone that is Iraq. Heather Raffo, an Iraqi-American journalist, playwright, and performer, has captured the psychic lives of nine Iraqi women brutalized by the Saddam regime. She will take your breath away, as she has done for audiences in London and New York.
