About the Event
Join us for a special, one-night only, live online reading of 9 Parts of Desire by Heather Raffo.
The award-winning play "9 Parts of Desire" details the lives of nine Iraqi women that span the decades between the first and second Gulf Wars and occupation. Described by The New Yorker as “an example of how art can remake the world,” it is a portrait of the extraordinary (and ordinary) lives of a whole cross-section of Iraqi women: a sexy painter, a radical Communist, doctors, exiles, wives and lovers. This work delves into the many conflicting aspects of what it means to be a woman in a country overshadowed by war.
This reading features the re-united cast of the Fall 2015 USF Theatre production, directed by Andrea Assaf.
Followed by a discussion with the playwright, Heather Raffo!
